:Hmmm, at the risk of repeating myself, isn't this the point that you wanna try to find someone who can listen to you play on a weekly basis and suggest exercises for you to work on to help strengthen your weak areas, who won't let you stop working on things that you don't totally have down, and help you choose exercises that will encourage the direction for your playing that you have defined? GET A TEACHER. There are people out there who have already been through everything you are going through. Why not take advantage of their struggle?
Point two: SPEED - in and of itself is pointless, your playing should reflect the vocabulary that you have internalised ie yer not going to play at a tempo that you can't "hear". To work on hearing lines at any tempo you have to start small, slow, and in a systematic fashion. Which is what a good teacher will help you do.
