This should work as long as you use high quality 2" filters. The problem is that many filters are designed to be used close to eyepiece - the farther away they are from the eyepiece, the more disturbing will be all imperfections of the filter, like a non-even surface. With high-end filters, it should work even with the addidtional 11 cm light-path of a binoviewer.
To rotate the star-diagonal, you need an additional T-2 quick-changer in front of the star diagonal. Then, you can rotate the diagonal and the binoviewer; the filter holder will stay fixed. Otherwise, you'd have to unlock/lock the Neckstar Locking Ring each time when you want to rotate the whole setup.

I would like to connect to a ZWO ASI071 camera which has a M42*0.75 connection. I believe a T2 thread is M42*1.0. so I am guessing that I cannot use the Baader UFC T-2 with my camera. I do not see any M42 camera connectors listed. What are my options?

The definition of the T-2 thread is in fact M42 x 0,75. The tread M42 x 1 has gone almost "extinct" and is not used anymore - at least by our adapters.
The UFC T-2 adapter should perfectly fit your camera.

Is there a version of this with female thread? My camera, when configured for 6.5mm back focus, has male thread. Adding an f-to-f adapter on top of this one puts me over the max back focus.

Unfortunately no - it has been standard for decades that a camera has got a female T-thread. Only recently, the first manufacturer has started to put male T-threads onto the cameras. At the moment, we don't have a female, camera-sided UFC-adapter.
