If you configure port 2 to have pins 2-9 as outputs then that will mean you have 1-9, 14 16 and 17 as outputs. If the  pins you mentioned above are all outputs then no need to alter any wiring.

Sounds like your spindle relays or VFD may be causing noise and tripping the E-Stop. Try putting some filtering in the SS config for the E-Stop, maybe 2 or 3 and see if it helps.

Plugin Control menu the ESS Config and enter a value in the filtering box for E-Stop, may even need some in the ther ones as well. Basically it is similar to setting a Debounce Interval in Mach except you have a wee bit more control as you can apply to seperate functions. One thing to note however is in the ESS/USSthe filtering is much more sensitive, where you may have 100 or even 2000 in Machs Debounce Interval the ESS should be low, no more than 10 I would say.
