Does - for instance - the defense maluses from multiple instances of spirit grips add together?

No. The same goes for talents and other powers unless stated otherwise. Only biggest works.

Need to be different sources = different Name for spell, talent, power to add up bonuses / penalties.

Correct. One thing to note about overlapping durations. The highest effect applies only until its duration expires, then the other effect takes over.

Minor, but it comes up when you re-buff party members before the last one wore off.
