Yes it does fluctuate very normal. At idle with no accessories on you will typically see 14 volts. If you have accessories on like headlights, wiper blades, air conditioning you could easily drop down to 13 volts.
Once again you are overthinking things.

You need to just drive it and chill. Stop worrying about every single noise and rattle it makes. It's a used going on 10 year old car.

Definitely not a Lexus. I just had to replace my passenger side sun visor last week. I went to clean it and it snapped off. $39.

IDK how many miles you have, but use a Ford only mount for the psm (passenger side mount), the dsm isn't really a issue. A poly dogbone (lower mount) which is really a roll restricter which restricts the motor from rolling back & forth. A poly lower mount really works, but adds a little vibration at idle. http://c-f-m.com........

I understand I had a Ford escort that left me on the side of the road five times.
Two timing belts, one clutch, one transmission, and a engine. The Focus doesn't have a timing belt nothing to worry about.
The focus is a reliable durable vehicle.
They typically give warning signs to failure.
