Here’s a link to Autolveller, it’s pretty easy to use, but always test your probe before you start. I use Mach3, have an indicator on my main screen the shows the probe status, guess you can do the same with your Linux cnc…
Btw, I use a big crocodile clip on the spindle to complete the probe circuit.

The autoleveler sounds like a good idea, although my typical work sequence is I set up the fixture, fly-cut it and then leave it on for a month or two - no more leveling needed. I'm doing very small autonomous fixed wing aircraft design -by myself - and find that it's better to have two aspects of this going at once, electronics (pcb board) and coding work ok, but not pcb and airframe, because I cut airframe parts on the 6040 on a vacuum table which cannot co-exist with the pcb fixture.
it's the traces between the pads on the microcontroller which cause most of my problems, but I have to have them or vias. I could do two sides using scheme you suggest, but so far haven't. I start my first run with a slight prick at 0,0 which I could drill through to index other side. Itr is helpful if i have to re-index a card for another pass, although I couldn't do this the way I work if I've had some reason to take the card off the router.
I'm surprised your router didn't come with ball screws, mine did. One of the highlights of the purchase was discovering the ballscrews were metris not imperial as advertised. this didn't cause much of a problem with small stuff, but later on when I started to make 8 nch parts things didn't fit weel with parts made on my mill.
I love this stuff, though and really Eagle ought to be able to do better. I have the lingering feeeling that I really have missed something.
