Hiya, a couple of queries about mixing Spellbound & Origin of the Species...
Currently gives bonus to Profession, presumably because this was spellcasting skill previously, does this need amending?
OotS is a Spycraft
series and works under those rules, so folks who want to keep going with Profession as the basis of magic use are fine to go as is. However, as Spellbound now looks like being entirely Mastercraft
, there's effectively no mechanical difference to replacing Profession with Spellcraft as the skill upon which that benefit is keyed.

No Lore of xxx. feats for the races (I think it only matters for Faun), currently houserules as Lore of the Heavens prerequisite is Fey not Elf, should fauns have a feat to give access to Spellcasting? or is this holding off on revision until we get the Charm school?
While flavoursome, the Lore feats are to my eye actually slightly mechanically unbalanced against dwarves -- they suffer the same degree of specialty and class restriction as elves so should be getting the same unlimited access to spell casting classes, whereas Orcs only getting 4 is fair because they have a greater choice of specialties.
So pending official ruling, as a rule of thumb I'd say a Lore feat should give a choice of 4 caster classes to races that have little (choice of 12) or no restriction on Specialty choices, and the full 8 to races that have none or 6 specialty choices.
