These two "есть" are homonyms. Есть like "to eat " and есть like "to own, possess,have". For choosing just consider the context. In case of possession we can use the verb or leave it out. And in most cases we don't use the verb. But sometimes we use it for emphasis or you can't do without it (in questions mostly). У нас (есть) большие возможности.У него ...

Before anything else I want to stress out that in my opinion if you don't speak language and have no intention to learn it to some extent, asking for a phrase just to address someone does not make much sense. As a monospeaker she still will answer in Russian and then what? I'm not big fan of this borrowing, in fact I actually dislike it however the sad ...

It is not a piece of cake though it can seem to be! First, if you and this girl are not strangers but know each other on some level, it may be more appropriate to use the informal pronoun ты.

It is possible to use a similar clause where the different genders don't matter. As for the meaning of 'service' here, without a context I can only suppose that 'main service of the product' could be something like 'serving for some task' or 'serving as some specific appliance'. Это можно отнести к числу основных применений и возможностей изделия.

Indeed repeating "один из" makes the sentence clumsy. Additionally, the word "сервис" in Russian sounds odd to my ear. I would replace it with old-fashioned "служебная функция". Then both words become of the same gender. Это одна из основных служебных функций изделия. Alternatively, Это одна из основных служебных функций и характеристик изделия.

I think the closest translation to Russian we can achieve using the transgressive of поразмыслить - поразмыслив. Затем, поразмыслив, я вспомнил(а), что нужно добавить гвоздику и корицу.
