Did the NO mimick existing prot worship or vice-versa?
#1
I've never been to any kind of protestant service, unless you count some of those old diocesan "retreats" I went to as a teenager, and don't plan to but in doing a little research online I came across some videos of methodist "worship" which greatly resembles the NO. This got my curiosity up so I thought I would look into other larger denomination's worship services and much to my amazement there were quite a few of them that had services which highly resemble the NO from vestments, prayers, hymns etc... with the exception of an oddball phrase here or there. 

So my question is: Did protestants novus-ordize their services after V2 or did the NO adopt their already existant services?

Even though I don't attend the NO anymore (except for occassional daily Mass) I feel cheated and nauseated after watching those videos and realizing that Catholics and protestants are using "worship" that is almost identical while one holds the belief in the Real Presence and the other is knowingly consumming nothing but crackers and grape juice.

The main liturgical protestant sects (Lutherans, Methodists and some Anglicans) adopted a lot of the reforms, particularly the 3 readings and 3 year cycle that goes with it. Plus prior to Vatrican II most of them had communion only once a month. after Vatican two especially with the Anglicans the have communion every Sunday.

Prior to Vatican 2 some were very traditional (and to this day in Sweden) but then had their own Spirit of Vatican II moments. The Swedes (who kept their Episcopacy after the reformation along with statues and altars) call their service Mass, was said Ad Orientem and resembled the Extraordinary Form. This "high church" style is still present in some area in America, so I have read, but from what I can tell a lot of them changed to match the modern Roman Rite. I do know for a fact that in England some Anglican priests even use the Roman Missal for their services.

I don't see the NO as a completely "Protestantized" Mass.  When I look at the history of the NO, I see a few different factors (and only a small part is ecumenism).

First and foremost, the NO is antiquarian.  In the time leading up to the council, many academics were doing in depth studies of the history of the liturgy.  I believe Tertullian gave a general outline of the Mass with readings from the Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel.  Many of the liturgists who worked their way onto Consilium were also more or less infatuated with the Apostolic Tradition of St. Hippolytus.  Many of the reforms trace directly to this document, because it allegedly outlines the Mass in the second century (albeit the Mass described was the consecration of a bishop, not necessarily the typical Mass).  Both "Eucharistic Prayer II" and much of the new episcopal consecratory prayer are based off the text.  Offertory was based on a supposed, "Jewish table blessing" that supposedly existed at the time of Christ (others have said it was pulled from the Talmud).  So basically, you had a bunch of liturgists who wanted to eliminate any "interpolations" and anything that the Church didn't have in the second century.  Thus, they basically went through the Missal and snipped out a large majority of these prayers.

The next major element was an attempt to "Easternize" the Roman Rite.  Many Eastern Rites (specifically Maronite and Coptic) also have prayers based off the Apostolic Tradition.  I believe one of the members of Consilium, Dom Bernard Botte, even wanted one uniform prayer for episcopal consecrations (for all Rites).  He really hated the old one, so he went for the one in the Apostolic Tradition.  Other members of the group didn't like the Canon of the Mass, and wanted a more narrative Canon similar to the Eastern anaphoras.  I believe they were also partly motivated by the Council's decree on the Eastern Rites.

Finally, the last element was ecumenism.  I don't think ecumenism played a large part in determining the general of structure, however it did play a part as the liturgists formed the prayers.  Consilium was composed of six Protestant advisors in addition to the Catholic members.  Many of the prayers can be comfortably read by a non-Catholic.  Even the original Apostolic Tradition contains many prayers that would make a non-Catholic uncomfortable.  These had to go, and you were left with "Eucharistic Prayer II", a castrated version of the anaphora in the forementioned text.

In regards to Protestant liturgies, I think some are based off the NO and some were independently formed.  Around this time, many Protestant preachers started reading the Fathers and noticed their Bible services weren't in accord with ancient worship.  Thus, they began forming their own liturgy in the same manner as Consilium.  After the NO was promulgated, I'm sure some groups took portions from us.  I believe Anglicans based a large portion of their 1970s revision of the Book of Common Prayer on the new Roman Missal.

One thing I have noticed is that most Protestants that have a communion service prior to VII said it ad orentium(sp) many Anglican and Lutheran Churches have what look like high alters after Vatican II and the Catholic Churches spinning around of the alter so the Priest can be a sideshow performer many protestant sects followed our lead.

Well you did have six Protestant ministers who helped Archbishop Bugnini create the Novus Ordo.

Our pope as Professor Ratzinger in the seventies wrote that if someone would attend a Novus Ordo mass in Latin and adhering to the rubrics, that person would have hard time to tell the change. The people facing altar, the communion to hand, the communion w/o confession were different changes, do not belong to the Novus Ordo.

In the sixties there were many self introuduced changes, many priests believed that they can make their own liturgy, so at first the Novus Ordo was accepted as stabilization. The problem was that no rules were enforced, except forbidding the Tridentine Mass

Justin Martyr first apology

And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need. But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead. For He was crucified on the day before that of Saturn (Saturday); and on the day after that of Saturn, which is the day of the Sun, having appeared to His apostles and disciples, He taught them these things, which we have submitted to you also for your consideration.

Michael Davies wrote how the novus ordo was basically from the 16th century anglican book of common prayer.  It was tweaked a bit perhaps.
