Yes, seems Stockfish is strong against Fizbo.
Now for the superfinal, if Houdini is not update, Stockfish is gonna win. Houdini needs 50 elo to win, so it is very unlikely, even with an update.

Atleast H contempt need to be finetuned against SF in superfinal. C=2 is obviously not going to work.

C0 is needed for better result. But even without, Houdini didn't lost much against Stockfish in these few games.

Unless H get updated, negative value is more optimal.

Negative value can instruct H to settle for draw in otherwise situations where H will play for advantage.

More draws is better than more lost games.

Maybe. But the new version of Houdini would be a good gift)
