Anyone have any idea what this says? Accorcing to what I've been able to find:

"This emblem, the Schwartzkopf heraldic badge alongside the death's hand emblem, was designed to honor an earlier Geschwaderkommodore, Oberst Günther Schwartzkopf, who was killed during the Westfeldzug."

As you already know, the aircraft is a Ju 88A-14 from Stab/St.G 77.

It's Squadron-Recognition Code is S2+LA.

Regarding the writing under the cockpit:

The font is Tannenberg Fett or something similar.

This is the font we use on for Jadgeschwader 1 name on the website.

The written words are two rank abbreviations and two surnames.

This is a guess, but I think it's something like:

Fw Jung
Ogfr. Zel

Here it is in Word, with the correct font:

The first rank is correct.  It's Feldwebel (Fw).  But I can't make out the first surname.  Jung is a complete guess.  Maybe someone else can?

The second rank and surname is correct, as far as I can tell.  Obergefreiter (Ogfr.) Zel.

Regarding the markings:

If you're curious, the shield badge used on the aircraft is a version of the 12./St G 77 emblem seen below, just with a larger head and without the tie.

Also, here is a better picture of the aircraft, without the website writing:

Here is an image of the skeletal hand:

And here are some images which show the general layout of the aircraft, as well as it's overall markings:
