In the HMF description of this rose, I see that they say "Feed this rose well". This rather confuses me: it's a Found Rose, after all, which gives the idea that it does fine with little fuss. Am I misssing something? Can anyone throw any light on this question?

In general, most Hybrid Perpetuals with heavy Damask Perpetual ancestry (as opposed to those more Bourbon-like, and the later ones with more Tea in them) do need to be "fed well" in order to keep "blooming well", but will "live well" just fine without. From what I've come to learn after growing them, they bloom when "late Spring conditions" -- milder weather, and an influx of water and nutrients -- trigger new growth. A prune after flowering helps as well. In the meantime, they hang in there and survive just fine once established, even if they don't bloom.

Has anyone compared "Benny Lopez" (syn "Mystery Santa Barbara Rose") with "Old Town Novato" (syn "Jay's Hudson Perpetual")

I doubt it. I think some CA gardeners grow both and would surely have noticed if the two cultivars were the same.

I have not seen tall arching growth nor does my plant sucker so far.

I don't grow either, but I'm noticing some similarities between this rose and the rose currently being grown as 'Rembrandt' (not the original). Has anyone else made the comparisons?
