As for lateral raises, try grabbing a machine or the squat cage and lean out sideways. Then do the lateral raise. The ROM is greater and you don't have your body to act as a brake for the weight.
I'm not sure what these are called. But I like them better. I think there is less inclination to cheat on these, because in that position it is really awkward to engage the legs to push off.

Yeah I'm sure I can find a pic. Easier than explaining it
Here is an example:
So it looks like his arms are about 30 degrees in. He has his palms down. I prefer a neutral or more thumbs up grip. But anyway this is more optimal in terms of length-tension. I'm sure I can provide info on that if you'd like.
Also a very good option for RC health and a good deltoid exercise in general is SLA's or "side lying abductions". This is where you lie on your side with a dumbell against your hip (palm toward the hip) and lift the db up to about 45 degrees. There is no scapular elevation that way and it takes the upper traps out of it. Just a good variation to have in the repretoire.
