Your tracking generator when normalized should be more like +/- 0.1 db over any reasonable bandwidth.
That's the whole idea of it.
It very slowly sweeps and automatically corrects the output level, which generates some kind of gain correction lookup table which it then applies during normal use.
I suggest you study the operators manual for your

Those min/max params are your "box". What you do within that
box, depends on what you want from the device - leakage, drive,
linearity / flatness, loading and so on.
The basic "how" is, you set the properties of the instance you
place in whatever capture tool you are using. But I think maybe
"what" and "why" are not understood either?

I usually use wave ports, but it depends on your situation. I'm not sure what you mean by "slot flatness".
The setup you have is incorrect. A port needs to cover a tangential cross-section of the waveguide, see for example the microstrip port setup here. If you are trying to excite

Yes, EM separation between couplers is the main reason of flatness and better directivity.
In this type of coupler changing the turns ration would not change too much the coupling. For example doubling the 10T to 20T on both transformers, the coupling will change only 3dB.
If you need less sampling output, just use a pad attenuator which will do

First of all to cover the 860 MHz to 960 MHz range you need a Log Periodic antenna, because a standard Yagi cannot cover this range with decent gain flatness over the band.
You need a printed Log Periodic Antenna, which actually is not much complicated than an Yagi to build. Search the net an you get a lot of examples.

Maybe the others have the same confusion that I have: What linearity to do mean?
Linearity vs. input power
or linearity of attentuation vs. the nominal value
or flatness of attentuation vs. frequency

To get gain flatness and good return loss over this bandwidth, using this kind of schematic is challenging.

If you have a PWM you need to filter its output using a LC lowpass circuit to smooth it out and then adjust the pulse width (that´s what pwms are intended for) to achieve the average voltage you need. If the load is purely resistive you need not to filter it. The higher the frequency the smaller L and C become. For maximum voltage flatness you may

PAPR is measured in time domain.
PAPR=(max(s))^2/E( (s)^2 )
Spectrum flatness does not depend from PAPR.

Actually the Gain flatness shouldn't be a problem in a multistage PA because there are more possibilities to adjust the Gain vs Frequency (input, output and interstage match).
For good stability the interstage matching topology plays an important role, as well the bias filtering of each stage.

The problem is the flatness of surface in body and cover.
Small gap exists in connect plane. And if you fabricate it by CNC, body is twist, maybe.
