I would fix down any flappable length of cable, movement breaks things over time.

If you have to pass the cable through a panel, a tightish hole and some sealant will keep thing airtight.

personally I would put the connector somewhere you won't see the cable if you look into the horn. I would also put it where it minimises the cable length inside the cab. negligable in the real world, but if everything else is equal, why add a resistive factor you dont need?

Yes, I'd avoid pins. There's something I know as "P clips" which you can screw down, or look at cable tie bases, some of these can be screwed down.
