I don't know if any of this is the "best" way of doing things, it's just what I'd do. YMMV.

It's been a while since I've done this, but you should be okay just booting from your Leopard disc and following the on-screen instructions. A fresh install (without updates 'n' such, just off the disc) takes me 12-15 minutes.

Next up, Keychain. Can I copy my keychain from the SD cloned version back to the HDD once Leopard is re-installed? If so, how?
Sure. Your keychain's in ~/Library/Keychains. It's named login.keychain.

Next, Mail and contacts. Obviously I want all my mail settings in the new fresh version of Mail, likewise my contacts. Hoe can I do this?
Mail:
~/Library/Mail
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

Contacts:
~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.AddressBook.abd.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.AddressBook.plist

Finally finally, is there anything in SD! that will make this process easier?
Not to my knowledge, except for saving a "clean slate" SuperDuper! clone for the next time you want to do this, as I mentioned earlier.

Hth.
