B&K and Vandersteen Good match??
If I had Vandersteen 2Cs I would buy an Audio Research Clasic 60 and Audio Research SP-14 and live happily ever after. Oh, you might want to add a Vandersteen 2W subwoofer later on. 
Vandersteen 2Ce and B&K good match??
It appears you are in the best position to answer this question. The best match I have found with Vandersteen speakers is Audio Research.

What does Audio Research recommend? 
Ideal Sub pairing for Quad 2805s

Amp recommendation for B&W 801 Matrix SII speakers
You dont need 350 watts for B&W 801 series II speakers. The best I have ever heard them was with Mark Levinson Model 20 class A monos. If you go this route be sure to mate with Levinson preamp. 
sound proof floor - practical examples?
Anything you put under the speakers will change the sound. You may be able to increase volume, but not like the results. 
Boarding school or duct tape?
How does it sound with duct tape? Maybe your daughter is a high end speaker designer in disguise. 
what cables for Krell 300i and Revel M20 suggest
I would try something warm with that combo. Maybe MIT. 
Auvio speaker wire from radio shack?
My friend is a firm believer in the Auvio interconnects. He has not tried the speaker cables. It's all system dependant, so if it works with your system I would go with it. If you have not done so you should try the interconnects also.
