  • Are there any suitable raw converters that can compare in quality while being faster?

I don't think there is anything much faster. I believe much of the time is doing the noise reduction. SPP still seems to be the best.

  • Are there workable X3F to DNG converters? (Last I tried Kalpanika, it failed on many files)

When you say fail, what did you experience? I use the tool, and the only issue I had with the dpm2 was that the color cast correction would fail on some images. Those ones I would simply manually edit in SPP.

  • Is there a suitable workflow for generically processing a folder of X3F in SPP to TIFF or other format such that similar post-processing results are possible in other programs? I love what SPP can do, but it's just glacially slow.

Others mentioned that there is a batch mode:

And there are some suggestions for SPP performance here:

One thing that might be helpful is to CULL your photos in another program like FastRawViewer or FastStone first.
