To be fair - these are part of the set of physical\mechanical attributes and their distribution in relation the vessel that would need to exist in order for the vessel to begin to create the space-time distribution around itself that would propel it in a given direction.
Your question amounts to "if we have solved all that [on your list above] what else is needed?"
Bottom line - the engineering of how to get the distributions needed, never mind how to turn it on and off, depend on the exact form that the negative energy takes. Therefore - nobody knows enough to answer the question you have posed in the way you seem to want - i.e. in an "engineering/schematic type of way.
That is partly why I'm not going into great detail about the exact shape - it will be a 3D structure that looks like a pair of toruses with flattened crossections. No doubt the distribution will get tweaked further as more people work on the problem.
If you want the details - go to the original papers and learn the math.
