Is it appropriate to ask for all the items listed above including information on the position and an agenda for the day?
Yes it is appropriate. "Can you tell me a bit about the position and whom I'll be meeting with?"
My other question is how much focus I should put on preparing for the possibility of technical questions. The other threads seemed to agree upon the fact "making sure I am good fit" and avoiding any social awkwardness was way more important since being brought in already proves that they believe I am qualified. However, I am a local and this interview would be expense free for them so I am not sure how much that changes things.
If they know your background, your technical knowledge shouldn't be a factor.
