Would you be able to recommend any chopstickable acupoints for excess heat and blockages in the lungs leading to chronic sore throat and mild tonsil inflamation...

Why, yes David, of course. Use the longstick on B-13 and 12 with reducing technique and the chopstick on L-11 also in reducing technique.
Also points such L-5 and L-10 both with the chopstick may prove very helpful. For the local point, use the wide end on Si-17 in reducing technique.
I also recommend that you read here:

My greetings to you.
Symptoms are pointing at lung qi deficiency - viz dropping of lower jaw to open mouth in sleep, breathlessness while climbing, swelling on face, exhaution, preference for warm foods, dislik cold food, but there is normal urination. Very strong loud shouting voice indicates affection with liver (?). Borborygmus also indicates liver qi stagnation invading intestines. There is pitting edema on lower extremities - indicating Kidney qi deficiency Presence of Gall stone indicates congealed dampness. Mental state - when in negative phase, can't bear praise of others, stubborn, "I am always right" approach, irritable stingy, highly secretive, not willing to dispose even useless articles.
Kindly suggest acupoints for chopstick stimulation.

Sp-6/ Sp-9/ B-23/ B-22 = dispersion.
To circulate fluids and stimulate the kidneys
B-13/ B-18/ B-20 = mixed technique.
To stimulate the associated organs & functions.
These points may be applied 3-5 times a week for several weeks.

Thank you Dr Schmuel,
1 Additional feed back from patient and accomplice received is, diabetic since 2000, prolapsed uterus since 1981, other lower warmer symptoms like knees pain edema on lower extremities (Covered), impatience, anxiety, "burning blood" over wishes not materialising which tend to heat up triple warmer. I hope these conditions are covered by the protocol suggested by you. I notice that you advise to treat organs through UB meridian. Use of K3 etc is not suggested by you.
2 I understand dispersion as meaning reducing excess or sedation (opposite of condensation). I did not understand mixed technique. kindly help
3 Should Sp6 also be sedated? is spleen not qi deficient?

I am suggesting points that react better to the chopstick stimulation. These are not necessarily the points that I might have in mind for acupuncture treatment. Dispersion techniques are not quite the same as reducing techniques. Please refer to the section in the book where these techniques are delineated. Mixed technique is usually referred to an even manipulation.
Sp-6 and 9 are both dispersed in order to enhance fluid metabolism. When you achieve that goal, a lot of pressure is relieved from the kidneys and spleen, and thus these organs are actually strengthened.
