I don't really understand. Why would you want to give the contact
information for the inner articles if it is the same as for the section
that contains them? The inner <article>s are part of the <body>. Contact
information for the <body> applies to the whole <body>.

Sure, any element that is a descendant of an <article> is part of that
<article>, even if it is also part of something else (such as a <header>).

<aside> is for what are typically rendered in printed media as floating
sidebars. Short inline comments are catered for by the "title" attribute:
<p>Put the disc in the <span title="that cup holder thingie">cd
...or, more typically, simply by marking the comment with parentheses, as
you did in your example:
<p>Put the disc in the cd drive (that cup holder thingie)</p>
