The little ridge/lip seems like it would create ripples or otherwise
disturb the air below the cowling.
yes, diverts it downward.

Does that effectively lower the pressure under there or something to aid
in the cooling process?
Creates a low pressure area sucking the cowl air out.

What effect would the half football shape and the tapering lip have on
the air?
see above
