Media and Templates folders shouldn't be disallowed at first place. GoogleBot now requires access to the css/js of a website in order to understand the design and layout of a website, and these two Joomla folders are the location where most of css/js are located. So it does make sense that Google reported that your website isn't responsive, as it didn't ...

I have never had to do something like this before. However, I just had a somewhat awkward but certainly simple idea which could work for you. Create a template override for the article view in: /templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/html/com_content/article/default.php In default.php, just below the defined('_JEXEC') or die; add the following: $time = strtotime("-5 ...

Most likely this is set in your .htaccess file - check your .htaccess file for any entries that may cause this. If everything is OK with your .htaccess file, then try disabling JotCache to see if it's the one causing the problem (I highly doubt it though).

Contrary to rumours Google does not penalise 404s. There is however detremental impact on the ranking your old pages had attained, the associated keyword matches for your old articles and of course user experience.
