On a driver which I just practiced on: I can see the club head (wood) pointing toward target both before and after separation. I assume that is proper but just wanted to check if this can be used as a benchmark.

I don’t quite get what you are describing here. Before separation the club would be at the top of the backswing so I guess it would be pointed at the target. On the way through after impact the club would also point at the target then continue to the back of the head. If this is what you are talking about then yes this is correct. If you are working on separation though you should be thinking of your belt buckle pointing towards the target while your club is still coming down. In other words you are trying to get the lower body ahead of the upper body so your main thought is the lower body not the club.

I think that drill will be important to help me get in the proper finish position when hitting a ball. My question is about playing golf. Should I force that position (clubshaft touching back of head) because to do that there is a manipulation with my hands/arms and the goal of the swing is to completely take the arms out of the swing?

You should manually be trying to set the club on the back of the head. Once you have trained it to go there then turn the arms off. You could just work on keeping the arms power and eventually it will go there but why not make the change faster? Just set it and train it to go there. Then it will go there on its own.

At the finish, is the lead elbow pointing off to the left at about a 45 degree angle or is it more straight up and down from the ground. My lead elbow finishes pointing off to the left at about 45 degrees. When I try to move it staright up and down, it does not feel right or natural

The lead elbow (left in a right handed golf swing) is about half way between vertical and a 45 degree angle. Vertical is too much so don’t try for this position. Just a little straighter will be fine.
This would be a good tip to watch:
