For example below if i wanted to upgrade just the FFR packages how can i do that in the UI, am i being stupid?
(or do I need to just accept per package upgrading has to be done via manual shell commands)

I was hoping to see an upgrade 'selected package' on the upgrade drop down or somesuch.

no, that's not supported. in general I would recommend upgrading all packages (while we try hard to encode all the needed inter-dependencies in the package metadata, it's always possible we've missed something which would result in a partial upgrade breaking something - and you also get the most likely to be well tested combination of packages if you don't keep random parts on old versions ;))

Agreed, as soon as you have those thunderbolt-net IPv6 and xDomain patches backported in the pve-kernel i plan to switch back to your kernel and drop my patched 6.5.2 ubuntu kernel, until then i can't upgrade all or it will break my cluster :)

your kernel (image/package) should not be overwritten by ours (each kernel version gets its own package name and file paths), and you can pin yours in your bootloader :)
 
and you can pin yours in your bootloader
umm i have no idea how to do that :) .... goes google.....

this right? proxmox-boot-tool kernel pin 6.5.2-tbfixes-v2+

Code:
Setting '6.5.2-tbfixes-v2+' as grub default entry and running update-grub.

do i need to re-pin after installing a new official kernel package?

no, the pin should be saved persistently until you clear it.
