Correct on both counts, but I've already done a lot of that searching and
finding, and I've managed to grok a fair amount.  Might as well pull you along
the learning curve with me.  :D

Nope.   If you read it again, it means that an oxide skin/film/crust forms, and
then metallic nickel has to diffuse through that to get oxidized on the surface
of that crust.

If it's published, it's already been paid for.  I had to do some backflips to
find copies of MY OWN research that got published through ACS.  What a scam to
the taxpayer.
