comment When could ellipses be considered to be overused?
Because there's no regulatory body for English, probably not. Show your writing to other people. After they've read it, ask them if you overuse ellipses. If you show it to a bunch of people and they all say that you overuse them, you do.

Could you provide an example? The answer is contextual, so specifics would help!

comment Is British English considered a foreign language to American English?
In that case, probably not. If you were talking about technical aspects like railroads, in which a lot of the words are different, I might note them as similar-but-distinct.

comment Is British English considered a foreign language to American English?
What sort of technical purposes? I imagine that there are a few in which it is, and many in which it isn't.

comment Addressing religious authorities
In general, personalized letters are better. Personalization includes having a specific job title. Fortunately, Wikipedia can help you in your search.

comment Which one is right? “Check out for… online” OR “Check out online for…”?
No. You have to check something out. You could say "Check the website out" or "Check out the website", but "online" isn't specific enough a place to use as an object here. I've edited my answer to reflect that.
