Does this Pre90 have individual input volume control separated from main volume control?
You can use a mode "Vol memory IN" where each input will set (and remember) a different volume level
(But not sure what you mean by "main volume control")

I mean I want to be able to set master level 0 dB of the Pre90 as a calibrated reference and lower input level independently from that, to reduce gain of external amp.

Well, it's not working like that...
You can have independent volume level on each input, which should be enough in my opinion...

On top of that, there is a "safe volume mode", to set the highest volume level when you switch to any input.

Useless! The Pre90 has the master level at -99db and you can raise the volume indipendentely for input. So yes, it works at opposite of your mind and this way of wark is also safer than yours. No worries, stay safe ;)

I went through the whole thread looking for a solution to extend the range of the remote controller.
What is suggested is:

1. take the remote apart and wrap the sender in aluminum foil
2. use an IR remote control extender

1 is not an option for me as I am terrible at DIY and I am afraid I will break my remote.

But I would like to give 2 a try so I need some advice as I never used such a thing.

What do I need exactly?
Is somebody using an IR extender which does the job?
May I ask for a link?
