We does our speaker accent the second syllable on dobra?

It is computer generated, not 100% natural, but "dobrá" is relatively OK, I can't hear what you describe.

Nom/Gen/Dat/Acc/Loc/Instr/Voc? Nom/Gen/Dat/Acc/Voc/Loc/Instr? "Communicative Czech" (Bednářová/ Pintarová) don't even mention it.

The latter. Czech pupils do not learn the latin names of the cases, but their numbers. Resources aimed at general public also use the numbers http://prirucka.ujc.cas.cz/?slovo=%C5%BEena

I have a Czech friend named Krystyna. Would I say, "Krystynu, jste dobrá žena"

That Czech name is usually spelled "Kristýna". The correct vocative form is Kristýno.
