Yes... 100% in so it bottoms out at the end is indeed more than 1/3.

I had to rip up more of the subfloor to see exactly what I had to work with and then it was just a matter of getting the parts and cut some pipe to length... The closet (toilet) flange is going to need a longer barrell on it...
Take a photo and post it.

Yes... they make them.

As to "O.D." reference I'll assume you made a typo.
Pipe is measured on the INSIDE.
Pipe is measured in both I.D. And O.D. why? I.D. for fittings O.D. for making block outs here is a good example say your doing new construction and you want to have the DWV got through the stem wall and you put a Thin wall PVC 4" ID pipe there the OD of that pipe is 4" 1/16th were as ABS OD is 4" 1/8th You just pooched yourself when you tear that block out, out. Your 4 inch ABS will not fit thru the stem wall.
So you better know both. Also When Pipe fitting you need to know the OD to find the take offs for long radius 90's and such. So No pipe is not just measured in I.D.

I've never used an O.D. measurement on any drainage piping when referring to the piping in general.
