I'm surprised someone hasn't yet, Skynight listed out every characters' skills for the previous 4 Mercenaries titles. With Blaze's translations being just as misleading as in those titles and the new skill level preview to help you decide where to spend your SP, I don't know if it's necessary but having it for posterity and clarifying incorrect skill descriptions is a nice thought.
I tried doing something similar but got bored fact checking each skill. https://docs.google.com/document/d/11200ioukfqz0b0eFdlvDta1i-q4N2tZ2ld3MIoGWaW8/edit?usp=sharing
Your attempt is so much better than what I had imagined doing! Now that I've started I realize the skill preview makes it a little irrelevant. Only exception would be the "special" classes that are locked until bought with puzzle pieces, which could help people decide which class path to take for level 20+
You could just savescum Puzzle Piece use to figure out what you want to invest in, but I also don't have the PC port for accurate skill effects. https://steamcommunity.com/app/1582510/discussions/0/3076503001091279380/ Mandatory Special Classes: Lester, Dalton, Kathryn (usable in both routes) Mercenary Route
Alvah's Champion is the best Leader Skill in the game since you can take 0 damage from physical and magical attacks via synethesis (you just have to worry about Instant Death), and increasing your stats is always helpful. Magus!Melissa's Thunderstorm works with her Blaze Exceed. Hermit!Xan gives him Korapus, as Melissa and Faye get Weaken for Status -25%.
Jake's Brave Knight is the second best Leader Skill since you won't have Champion!Alvah on Knight route. Pamela is busted with both her special classes, Descent with Silence resistance and Quick Shoot for Fire Emblem Awakening Galeforce kill chains. Faye's Propheptess is great for Liberation, which works like Eunice's (Mercenaries Wings, Leave Route) AoE Status +% skill (Bless is single target in this game).
I think otherwise it's not too notable or samey from the prequels, just grab relevant active and passive skills.
