I don't think you will have any issue especially out in the desert where you are. Use pressure treated for anything in contact and the rest will dry in the air gap. Same as any older slab house. New ones they are starting to put plastic under the slab but that is only on new homes. If you are going to cut the 2 by's to fix any slope you had in the concrete I would put the cut side up and not down. I
m sure Simpson makes a bracket for proper mounting.

No, they will have something that will bolt to the concrete slab and hold the lumber

Default thanks

stopped by local true value, and inquired,
they suggested "tapcon" at about every 3 ft,

and some strap looking things to attach intersecting 2x6 ,
basically a 2x4 flat plate with spikes on it, and you nail thru it.

next issue - heated floor?
beneath the sub floor, or just beneath the laminate floor?

There are products designed specifically to go right under laminate (and other forms of flooring). I would think that the heat transference might be diminished if you put it under the subfloor. I could be wrong though.
Like this for example: https://www.thermosoft.com/radiant-floor-heat
