The choral song is "Cuckoo!" composed by Benjamin Britten, the French song is "Le Temps de l'Amour" by Françoise Hardy and the classical music is from "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" composed by Benjamin Britten.

Alexandre Desplat wrote the score for the film and created variations of "The Heroic Weather-Conditions of the Universe". These are the songs that can be heard throughout the film in scenes with Suzy and Sam. The complete list of songs can be found here with their corresponding scene descriptions.

If the therapy in question is Electroconvulsive therapy, then yes, it is highly possible that children were given this treatment.

This cartoonish style is also evident when the junior scoutmaster rescues the senior scoutmaster by jumping an impossible distance. The movie is not meant to be taken 100% literally... it has an exaggerated-campfire-story vibe throughout.
