Just to be absolutely clear, this applies to quest experience as well as your usual grinding?

So am I to understand that those with rested XP will not gain any extra XP from the promotion?

Not for killing mobs, but if everything else is doubled. So you still get more XP.

Awww, too bad. So, with the base number of 200% experience, it's essentially just as if you are permanently rested. But the EXP Boost stims also are doubled in effect, so that's what, +40%?

Incorrect. Rested experience only affects the killings of NPCs, double XP as a part of this promotion affects literally everything (space, quest rewards, PvP, etc). Technically, this double XP is way better than what you would normally get from rested.

Then, as I listed above you can increase those benefits through boosts and Legacy perks.

Nice I like that
One question though: the last double XP weekend beeing the 6th of April, is that a hint that the expansion is coming right after that or is it me just dreaming?
Just wondering considering the "end date" for those double XP weekends...

What time does it start on Friday and what time does it end?

This is great news. News of Mercenary Arsenal improvements would have been even better though.
