Are you sure? You could extract input_2_nologos.mp4 image by image,
just to be absolutely sure, but ffmpeg should do the right thing.

No, ffmpeg should actually cut with "-ss".

Sure. The concat file takes per-file options such as "inpoint" and
("inpoint" is a timestamp, and not an offset from the beginning, it
seems. I haven't tested the effects.)
