It's been a while since I looked through a three volume edition, but I do believe that each original index (one for each of the twelve books) is reproduced in the collected volumes. So Vol 1 has Lost Tales I (including an index for that book), Lost Tales II (including an index for that book), Lays (including index), Shaping (index) and Lost road (index). Vol 1 does not have an index of all five books combined - you have to know which book you are interested in, and find the index for that book in the combined volume. Make sense?

Do the trade volumes of the three book set have the color frontispieces included? Or black and white?

The first impressions of the UK 12 volume set all had full color frontispieces. Later impressions had those in black and white. I don't have any of the POD versions, so I don't know which they went with there - I know you said you weren't going to order POD directly, but they are also in the secondary market now too...

There are 12 volumes of History, so the Index is the 13th. The Index has only ever been issued separately in hardcover via POD. The twelve volumes each have their own Index (the 13th volume just combines and unifies those separate Indices into one). The three volume editions maintain the paginations for each of the volumes they contain, so the POD index should work with them too.

I don't think there have ever been any textual changes made to HoMe. Someone here will correct me on anything I've gotten wrong I am sure...

Hah! "Rarely see this as old as it is" - actually, all of those editions are that old...
