My take on Cestius is here:

Essentially, he sacrificed his soldiers in order to give the Zealots false confidence that they could win their independence and thereby get the war started in earnest.

Stephen (a.k.a. James bro. of Jesus) was much too old to be associated with Galba's intended successor Frugi. In any event Frugi never got the chance to be emperor in his own right.

I think you are clever to look for possible symbolism in the various Roman Legions, but not sure where you are going with it so far.

And it's Friday. Please teacher, no homework over the weekend!
