<There's also a clicking sound every few minutes, I assume from the thermal protector.>
So the compressor is going out on overload for some reason. It will do this with high head pressure, faulty winding, faulty relay, partially  or fully seized compressor.

< Reversed polarity with relay in place - Compressor seems to run, but fridge won't cool>
Reversing polarity in this situation with relay installed is exactly the same as non reversed due to AC power.

<The start prong was powered either by the relay or I bridged it briefly with a screwdriver to get it running.>
So you got the compressor running, it's not reversed.

So with compressor running, check and feel for cooling where the capillary line goes into the evaporator, is there a cooling plate inside this cooler or is it behind a panel. Listen for gas hissing, surging, liquid changes to gas at this point

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Samsung RF23J9011SR/AA Warm Fridge

Revision 08, build date in 2016.  Not showing any error codes. 

Freezer keeps temp but fridge is in the 50's.  Fridge temp display on the outside was correct until recently.  Door said fridge was in the 50's, but now it says fridge temp is 34 but fridge interior temp is 45 when checked with a thermometer.  Both compressors are warm and I can feel them vibrate on.  LED's on the two boards on the back turn on and off.  Any advice?

It's a 3-prong compressor, so Common and Run... I think the same as neutral & hot. The start prong was powered either by the relay or I bridged it briefly with a screwdriver to get it running.

@thorning thanks. yeah this is the plastic band front rests. they look as little worn but not torn up. wouldn't think there is any catch or lump that would cause a shudder like this but they aren't really conducive to any kind of runout micrometer. so i'm going put a rear bearing kit and slides for arguments sake and see what happens. thanks again for stopping by to offer your observations. any others welcome.

It is not likely a factor but take a close look at the drum to see if it has a problem. Also the drum rollers for flat spots or other problems. Also on the GE type dryers  the front end of the drum  runs on a plastic band at least on the current type that wears out and produces a noise when the drum rotates. Also not likely but possibly the tumbler bars have have material inside them that cause noise and imbalance. Good luck

<Reversed polarity with relay in place - Compressor seems to run>
So you reversed hot and neutral?

Try and see if you can get into diagnostics mode, I haven't looked to see if this is similar to yours so may be irrelevant
