She just sort of hangs around. I imagine she just befriended Remilia by chance and then decided to abuse her wealth in order to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming the world's greatest hikikomori.

Court wizard?

If you have a castle, you get yourself a wizard. Sakuya can stop time and all that but I'm sure some magic is used in the place.

And it's not like she was useless, she defends the mansion when it's being attacked by the protagonist, voluntarily or as her duty.

She came with the library. Haven't you been to a big enough library? Those come with their own book-obsessed little girl and/or orangutan attached (Dalian, Patchouli, the Librarian, Nya, Eve, Yue...), you just need to know where to look. As you know, large quantities of books are capable of warping space and when the information concentration in any library exceeds a certain threshold, the place collapses unto itself and connects itself to the L-space. If you are present in a library during this event, and especially if you're the one bringing in the last book, you may end up as the library's resident little girl.

Wikipe-tan was the result of such an event, due to the vast increase in Wikipedia's size.

Aren't the required library sizes extremely large? The Great Library contains everything that happened or will happen, Nya's library likely contains information on everything that doesn't exist and can't exist as well. Even the smaller libraries like Dalian's compete by having magical books, though Dalian's last keykeeper used to buy books by the shelf so small is comparative here.

It happens to be in the Scarlet Devil Mansion, but it is still Patchouli's library.
You could argue, that she is below Remilia, but that might perhaps not be much of the case anyway.

The library is Patchouli's domain.

I like to think that Patchouli was a friend of the Scarlet's father that got roped into tutoring the sisters and helping manage Flandre, and in return got the full run of the Voile Library.

Judging by their names, clothing, and style of building of the SDM, its generally presumed they're from somewhere in Europe. Except for Sakuya's and Koa's names, which are Japanese, and kinda come out of nowhere.

I am aware Remilia gave Sakuya her name, but its a JAPANESE style name, which doesn't make much sense if she was given it while the SDM crew were still in Europe. Same goes for Koakuma's name, assuming the same.
