That's the simplest option, yes.

It's a little tricky to set up, yes. Is there any reason you're using
DHCP for these rather than using normal static IP addressing though? If
you're going to fix DHCP assignation via MAC addresses then it doesn't
seem any more convenient than static addresses, but with the downside
that you're dependent on the DHCP server.

Far simpler, yes. Using the database for name resolution seems akin to
using a screwdriver as a hammer, just because it's handy. A DNS server
is the proper tool for name resolution - you mentioned using bind9
already, so just add the static addresses and frontend names to the zone
