2) There are taxis waiting at the harbor (Tianjin Home Port), but they seemed pretty hard-core negotiators.

On the bullet trains, there is plenty of space at each end of every coach for large suitcases and overhead space for smaller bags. So, the amount of luggage you have will not be a problem on the train, as long as you can carry or roll it onto the car yourself though there are steps at either the Tanggu or Tianjin station which makes it quite tough to carry your large suitcases.
