The entire reason I chose Prickly Rose was the double STAB, so Wood Hammer was supposed to deal 14(Base Power)+6(Double STAB)+3(Stat difference) = 23 damage.
2) According to the DAT, the stat changes in speed work differently than ingame. To be more specific:

Calculating Speed Boosters:
Stage Boost Speed (100 Base)
+6 +10.50 1050
+5 +08.75 0875
+4 +07.00 0700
+3 +05.25 0525
+2 +03.50 0350
+1 +01.75 0175
+0 +00.00 0100
-1 -01.75 0057
-2 -03.50 0028
-3 -05.25 0019
-4 -07.00 0014
-5 -08.75 0011
-6 -10.50 0009
For Speed, each of these acts as a multiplier on Base Speed for positive values, and a divisor on negative values (no boosts uses the regular Base Speed). Ex: A Pokemon with 100 Spe at +1 has 175 Spe, and the same Pokemon at -1 has 57 Spe. Always Truncate the Speed. This makes Speed Boosters and droppers about equivalent to how they act on actual speeds in the cartridge, even though the values are increased.
In other words, -1speed = normal speed / 1.75 (and not 1.5). Result being: 55/1.75=31.4 speed, slower than Blizzeta.
That being said:
