anonymous1).what is the grammatical function of “and with good reason”

It is a fixed expression being used as a sentence adverb like "understandably".

anonymous2). Is the use of “and” correct in the sentence,

There are two. The first unremarkably ends a list. The second is an optional part of the fixed expression.

anonymous3). What kind of sentence is this, a simple, compound, or complex.

Who cares? Sorry, it's just that I don't. I write what I have to.

It looks like a simple sentence to me. I only see one clause.
