Is it just me, or are there no detours whenever there is a switchback that is an ARI? ???

The broken ox task in 25 had a Detour attached as well.
You could ostensibly count the waterslide in 28 (it wasn't labeled as a switchback but teams were actively referencing Mika), and that leg had a Detour and RB.

That said I think that that only came up...once (cheese hill)? There's a lot more roadblocks that are used as roadblocks again (haybales, ditch vault, spy task, Corinth bungee).
Scheduled to dance tonight

Yanina Latorre & Carlos Bernal
José María Muscari & Noelia Marzol
Pedro Alfonso & Florencia Vigna

This list is subject to last minute changes.

Is there a penalty for missing a U-Turn and checks in the Pit Stop despite being U-Turned? Or disregarding the U-Turn just to continue the race without doing the other Detour after being U-Turned?
The standard penalty for TAR US is 4 hours for skipping a task.  In TAR7, three teams chose to skip the Roadblock (Eating 4 pounds of meat) in Argentina.

If a team inadvertently misses a task, they sometimes have the option of returning to the course and completing the leg properly.
I made one lay out for s30 (okay there's really no specificity for s30)
Leg 1 (a double length leg) : Vladivostok leg : roadblocks include any water related tasks in freezing winter winds, ice fishing, any generic height related task (because why not), and since we are in the russian pacific military stronghold, any military related roadblocks.
Leg 2 & 3 : Japan, osaka & kyoto. The osaka leg can be filled with Japanese pop culture and fun tasks like previous japanese legs. The kyoto leg  can delve into Japanese culture and mythology.
Leg 4 & 5 : New Zealand ! I know we'd rather have Australia (it's been nearly 11 seasons.) But New Zealand > Australia (no offense). 1 leg can be in rotorua where there are a lot of adventure related tasks and the other can be in Wellington, the highly underrated capital of NZ.
Leg 6 : India ! 1 leg can be in Kerala (it's a region in southern India with gorgeous views) which can have some tasks related with elephants (s20 waddup) and some tasks related to coconuts. there can be a detour involving two traditional malayali arts - kathakali and kalari-payattu. Kathakali is a very tough dance to master and Kalari-payattu is a very fast paced and highly athletic martial art. a u-turn on this leg will stump racers bad.
Leg 7: Croatia. I'd say Zagreb (see, nz) but dubrovnik is definitely the city to be ! y'know to improve their TRPs they could have a collab with GoT in Dubrovnik. Plus there is always this one city famous for its wines. Dubrovnik could be it.
Leg 8 : Andorra - one of the smallest countries in the world. This leg could be like the s26e6 leg. Andorra is a beautiful amalgamation of spanish and french cultures. so this would be beautiful.
Leg 9 : Ireland. I don't really remember when TAR visited Ireland before but Ireland seems really fun. There should be a fast forward or a task that involves barrel rolling. Also Irish poetry. This might be a good leg for a u-turn.
Leg 10 : Cote'd'Ivoire. A really underrated african nation. they could have some rally related tasks (abidjan) and definitely a detour involving chocolates.
Leg 11 : Kinda unsure about this leg. It could be a leg in some south american country or a second leg in cote'd'ivoire. If we do visit a south american country it would mean that we'd visit 6 continents !
Leg 12 : Idk. some american city.  Not a personal fan of the final legs.
So there you have it !! a very crude lay out of what i'd want from TAR 30. And personally the season should be an edition of unfinished business. and the tasks shouldnt be bland (you listening s29?)

Would TAR be any different if TAR debuted in 1980s or 1990s?
