When writing a commentary...

  1. Does the +1 bonus to quality express resonance? If so, the bonus is sort of meaningless, since a +1 resonance is trivial (compared to the story-based +2 and the enchantment+story +3) but it would still make sense.

  2. Do commentaries count against the maximum number of tractatus you can write on a topic, or are they counted seperately (at like 1 per summa or something)?

1 The +1 quality for commentaries is not related to resonance. The quality of commentaries is just computed differently than the quality of tractatus.

2 No they do not, they are not tractatus.
