When you say align vertically, I assume vertically center? If you don't want to outline the text, I'd try the following: Select both the text and icon Cmd+B, change vertical alignment to center Try aligning again using the Align palette.
I think of the baseline grid as a framework to build from. You could probably potentially use it for everything but your work will end up looking robotic. For the web, I think it could make sense to use multiples of your baseline grid to create spaces between your elements as you can probably define it as an em or somehow in sass and reuse it. In print, I ...
I have a feeling the answer would come down to opinions. In my opinion no, the baseline is for consistent vertical flow. And the grid for layout and logical sections. The two could be integrated. But may create more design issues than they fix. You could have baseline with multiples of 4px and a grid with multiples of 7px, as long as it looks good its ...

You'll find that every designer has a different process. I used to be PS or nothing, but now that websites are less photo based and rely more on CSS and SVG's for graphics I've become devoted to Illustrator. I still use PS to edit my photos. Using symbols have become valuable as it saves time in the long run, say you need to make a change to an icon, you can ...
