Marcus, as a potential solution to the diversity statement issue, I have mine as part of my teaching portfolio. So if the job ad asks for a teaching portfolio or "evidence of teaching effectiveness," they automatically get my diversity statement (unless they specify that they only want specific things like evaluations and/or teaching statement, which some do, but i also address diversity directly in my teaching statement and often expand that portion for jobs that dont mention diversity statement or dont want the whole portfolio).

This seems like a peculiar case -- the ad specifies only a couple of things, and then some (standard) items are listed as optional to upload on the website: a research statement and cover letter. In this case, I would upload them, since I would imagine the vast majority of candidates have those items ready at hand and will upload them.

When I was on the market optionals were usually "extras", like an extra writing sample or an extra letter. I would supply those materials if it was easy or served some purpose (like if the ad was for my AOS but specified that they would like someone with a strong research interest in X, I would upload an extra writing sample in X, if I had it).
