Yes, VAUX1 is spare and intended for such use.

One general hint: please use very very thin copper wires if you solder directly
to the test points or you easily may rip them off by pulling on the cable. And
then there is no chance to repair them. This is the reason why we plan a
FFC connector for the GTA04A5.

A better place for connecting wires is to locate some R's or C's on the PCB.

Yes, that should work well.

Sorry: I meant TXS0102. Ther is also a TXB0104 but it is not for open collector.

Yes, that looks fine :)
