comment Elliptic surfaces with different Kodaira symbols
At least in characteristic not 2 or 3 this is impossible: the elliptic fibration is unique for Kodaira dimension 1. For char 2 or 3 you may have to consider quasi-elliptic fibrations, and I haven't thought through it.

No, the Picard rank can be anywhere between 1 and 20, for a lattice polarized K3 surface.

comment Determinant and eigenvalues of a specific matrix
If you let $e^{-c}$ be $x$, then the matrix has polynomial entries in $x$, and experiment seems to indicate that the determinant is a product of cyclotomic polynomials (for instance, if $n = 6$, we get $-(x-1)^{15}(x+1)^{15}(x^2+1)^6 (x^2-x+1)^3(x^2+x+1)^3(x^4+1)^2(x^4-x^3+x^2-x+1)(x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1)$. (In particular, the power of $(x \pm 1)$ seems to be $n$ choose $2$.)

comment Lattice points and convex bodies
I would be surprised if this were true even for integer polytopes - that the Erhart polynomial determines the polytope (though I can't seem to find an immediate counterexample by searching online ...). You can certainly do $GL_n(\mathbb{Z})$ transformations without changing the number of integer points.

comment Nefness on a K3 surface
Not if the divisor $D$ is reducible - else take $D = C + f$ on a Hirzebruch surface with $C^2 = -2, f^2 = 0, C \cdot f = 1$, and notice $D \cdot C = -1$. If you don't assume $D$ is effective, then Jason's comment shows you that there's no way to distinguish $D$ from its negative.
