When I test install and compare against other fonts using same size and line spacing, the line spacing of mine appears very generous. Should I be adjusting/entering cap height and descender values elsewhere to properly reflect the changes?

If you did not change the value of units per em then the line space will increase. The ascender and descender value should match up with the units per em value, depending your design off course. good luck!
