If it wasn't already obvious, I'm using the on-screen keyboard. And, for the record, if that doesn't work well, then I won't use MMD. In seven years of using iPads, I've never once connected an external keyboard to one. If I want a real keyboard I use my laptop. I may be (probably am?) the exception, so you are free to not care. :) Just letting you know there are people who don't, and aren't going to, use them.

The various line conversions are based off Mac, and currently require some content to work (they leave blank lines alone so that when you convert lists to blockquotes, or whatever, you don't end up messing things up). I'm still deciding on exact interface mechanics for new lines. (So for now, start typing your line and you can then tap any of the buttons you want.
Closing # in headers is optional, just like the Mac version.
I've thought about "header up" and "header down" buttons. Trying to decide how to provide proper functionality without overloading the UI with too many buttons. Especially with limited space on iPhone.
The three lines without any markers are for plain text. Trying to decide on the header icon to make it fit the theme, but having a bunch of headers in a row doesn't quite make sense (unlike lists, bullets, etc.). Plus the # were rather small..... Still tweaking that.
Yes, I know they do, that's what I was complaining about. :) They shouldn't. If I'm on a blank line and hit a list button, it's because I want to start a list. I'm not sure what converting lists to blockquotes has to do with anything.
If I've ever seen the "Append '#' to end of heading", it's so long ago I don't remember it. I would argue that, like typewriter mode, it should not be the default.
The "#" is perfect for headers. Don't overthink it. If the three lines are plain text, you don't the need the hard press on the header down button. :)
I don't know that I would have one list button and have it give you a popup list to choose which one you wanted. As you said, take up a lot less room, especially on a phone. (I'm never going to use this on a phone.)
