comment Does this sentence require the pronoun 'they'?
Is it the so Adj part of the construction that necessitates a full tensed sentence after the complementizer? I.e., omitting the so Adj allows me to also omit the pronoun? There was a man I'd swear was a giant. vs There was a man so tall I'd swear he was a giant.

comment Correct punctuation before a name or list of names
I understand what you mean about emphasis. In speech, if my cousin's name was Bill, I would put the emphasis on "Bill" (I invited my cousin, Bill.) Whereas if my friend was Bill and I was answering him, I'd probably emphasize "cousin" (I invited my cousin, Bill.)
