Maybe stupid question:
Will the double header events be raced with identical track layouts?
Presumably yes. No announcements have been made on different layouts.

I don't get why they didn't name the second race at either the Red Bull Ring or Silverstone the European Grand Prix. Maybe they were afraid of anti-European Britains going mad and waving around their red £350 million busses, but I don't see any reason for Austria.
Yeah even Baku was fine as European Grand Prix so why not now? Strange. They could always go with Liechtenstein Grand Prix as well for Red Bull Ring, not any more wrong than the famous Luxembourg or San Marino Grand Prix's.

Or the Swiss Grand Prix... held in France.

Good to have F1 back, as long as it's all done safely.

How is the first British GP possible after less than 14 days of Hungarian GP

Two of the GPs (Hungary and Spain) are sponsored by Aramco. Last time I checked, that was the Ar(ab)Am(erican) [Oil]co(mpany). The Saudis are building an F1 certified track, but they could have a Saudi Arabian GP in Europe before they are even awarded a race date! How's that for continent leaping, name swapping and plain old culture shock?

Reverse the track for the second weekend!! That would be something to see.
Run off configuration and the placement of various structures would make it unsafe to do a reverse track, at least in the case of Silverstone. Chain Bear explains way better than I can in this video.

If I remember correctly the championship is only valid when the races are held at more continents (2-3?). So more races have to follow, outside of Europe.

The soap opera over where Vettel will end up continues...Mercedes/Renault/etc...Haas not in love with Grosjean. Would Vettel go there, or is Grosjean locked in thru 2021? Is Bottas vulnerable with Vettel looking for a ride?

Red Bull team looks VERY strong w/ MV, Albon, and that Honda engine.

Maybe they could change of the tire formula for race 2 on the double headers? If Bernie was charge he would add sprinklers for race 2.
