This will be used by multiply people a week mostly who have little to no experience. I would like to use the driverack as a way to keep the novice users from blowing the speakers out and keeping the EQ steady.

Any tips or things to look out for would be much appreciated!

Unfortunately in that situation even the simple Yamaha MG10 mixer you have has too many knobs.
In this case your walking a fine line between giving them a system with some capability and how long it is till something is blown up.

Depends what you mean by a "powered signal". You cannot connect the speaker outputs from the amp to the powered sub but you can link from the 1/4 TRS jacks that are right next to the XLR inputs on the amp, electrically that is the same as the link outputs on the sub.
