for #4, since you tried renaming outcmd.dat, that just leaves you with <profile_name>.xml* file.  This is the file that keep track of the pane of your favorites and shortcuts.
 
* XML = Outlook 2010
* FAV = Outlook 2003/2007

my question was if the Outlook Favourites do get stored/saved locally or on the exchange?

and where is the FAV file located: is it inside the PST file or on a separate directory on the C Drive?

The settings are stored locally @ the below location
<profile>.xml file should be around\under the %appdata%/Microsoft/Outlook folder

>> These fav. are generated, computed and consumed only by Outlook profiles

>> these fav. are not used by OWA, Activesync device and so no need to store these details on the server.

This is not store on the PST file.
