Well done !! This is how you learn and understand things.

The 'amplitude modulation' is an artefact of looking at a
graphical interpretation that doesn't do antialising. It's
the sum of f=0.49 and f=0.51. When the latter is removed,
the 'amplitude modulation' disappears.

Right.

For f=FS/2 the alias and the original are the same except
that the alias has the imaginary 'sine' part inverted (by
symmetry). So the 'cosine' part (the one where the peaks
of the waveform coincide with the samples) is doubled, while
the 'sine' part (samples at zero crossings) gets cancelled.
