Not covered, so to address your questions:

For something like, "Soup, the comfort food, for everybody!" I might run with:

Híauíalörsauk, sö mvabs, mnözçetheglomans cha, la fan nü!
everybody-DAT INDEF soup-NOM, comfort.food-NOM DEF, AUX.PRES all-ADV be-HORT
Soup, comfort food, for everybody!

:?: INDEF.NOM soup INDEF.NOM comfort.food be

Sans a hortative, I guess this would approximate the advertising slogan, "Some soup is good food."

Sö mvabs la sa mnözçetheglomans nöi!
INDEF soup-NOM AUX.PRES INDEF comfort.food-NOM be
Some (any ol') soup is good food.

But the definite article would make it, well, more definite. "Soup is good food."

Chö mvabs la sa mnözçetheglomans nöi!
DEF soup-NOM AUX.PRES INDEF comfort.food-NOM be
Soup is good food.

The instrumental you're looking at is because the soup is made with love:

sö mvabs höi chí shesölsín segréltölöb ngrhüb...
INDEF soup PTCL DEF love-INSTR home.made-NOM hot
Hot soup made with love...
fanʉph raul is not Géathnuns.
