Not exactly gaslighting, but the movie itself is kind of a huge meta-joke in that the film gives the audience blatantly false information. Hell the opening contradicts the ending with how [MAJOR SPOILERS] Al supposedly dies in 1985 ,but the pre-movie intro shows the real Al very much alive

There aren't any drawn out addiction plotlines, though the alcohol abuse could arguably be interpreted as having an addiction component

Someone gets caught in the shredder at the factory. No clear visual, just implied.

One scene of an LSD hallucination of a face melting that is fairly be graphic, but the gore level in the action scenes is relatively low

Somebody spits up blood. Later, people make fart noises with their hands and with a Whoopi cushion.

At the end, protagonist wets himself onstage while being televised. He does not seem to notice or care. It is played for laughs, but it’s not really remarked upon much

One of the record execs makes a gagging noise (approx 30 mins in), but nobody gets sick. There is also reference to a band named "Skunk B*rf"

In a later act, during the Amish Paradise song, the flashing is at its most intense.

The whole thing is satire of biopics, and there are a lot of jokes that make it seem like the movie is aware it is a movie. Making fun of common movie scenes, information that is comically different from well-known reality, even the actual Weird Al appearing to make fun of the actor playing himself. There is also narration. But the characters do not directly address the audience like in Dora

Pablo Escobar makes a joke about "hearing voices" while talking about how loud the music is.

Hard to answer since Pablo Escobar was a real person although it might still be slightly iffy that the only Latinos in the movie are criminals even if no offense was intended obviously

His mother gains some weight and it's a bit of a meta joke about his song 'Fat', but in the context of the movie the characters are supportive/positive about it and the song isn't actually in the movie.

[SPOILERS] You could argue this in a subtle way seeing as how a character’s backstory involves being excommunicated from his religion and having to take any kind of work to make ends meets

That is a surprisingly difficult question to answer, but since the whole movie is parody I went with no

A surprising amount, though other than one brief scene on a television it doesn't really start until after the kidnapping scene
