There are no stupid questions only gaps in knowledge to be filled :)

Army pensioners were administered by the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the vast majority were "out-pensioners".   "In-pensioners" were the relatively few who surrendered their pension in exchange for residence in the Royal Hospital.  Since the 1950s, when the Royal Hospital ceased to be responsible for the distribution of pensions, the term Chelsea Pensioner has largely replaced the term in- pensioner.  Your chap was almost certainly an out-pensioner.

The Bounty Board was an institution specific to the militia which could consider whether a man's annual bounty should be all or part withheld because he had committed some offence.  Appearance before the board appears to have been ordered here because of his lateness but no result is recorded.

Yes, that was on 22 Oct 1916 in Dublin (still in 4th Battalion RIR).  Unless it is on the unreadable scraps of paper there appears no record of whether he turned up again.

No.  No soldier who deserted and subsequently court martialled on home soil was executed.
