1) the smash revolves around power and swing. turning your body and keeping the racquet up and angled at a 60 degree angle was the way my coach taught me. Applying these two factors should result in a powerful, direct smash.
2) Master the smash first, then learn the jump smash. It mostly revolves on timing, power, and a quick recovery.
3) Usually, a flick serve is countered by standing with your racquet up and having your right foot in front. With this defense stance, you can rush and attack a flick serve, regardless if its near the net or high. For additional backing power, apply the same stance and have your right toes up if you need to kick off to catch the bird in the backcourt.
hope that was helpful...

Majority of players stand with their non-racquet-foot towards the front service line.

No professional players prepare to receive serve with their racket foot forward. All professionals prepare with their non-racket foot forward.
There is a reason for this

I think in dealing with power, you should work on clears first. Once you can do a proper baseline to baseline clear the power shouldn't be as much of an issue, just the angle. It's an easier thing to practice first, clears, so that you don't have to worry so much about the angle when you're first starting.

The reason all professionals stand like this is that, if they stand with their racket foot forward, they have no chance to attack a flick serve. It takes too long to turn the body.
