"Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply CPU fixes as soon as possible."
All CPU patches need to be applied :-)
you cannot apply the CPU and the PSU, the PSU has additional important fixes in addition to the same security related fixes inside the CPU patch,
this means you will have to choose between i and ii (recommended: ii) and the others can be applied together.

You are correct - customers need to choose the CPU/SPU path or the PSU path - once you apply a PSU, you cannot apply CPUs/SPUs. PSUs include CPUs.
