Re: Null's not null?
You could try using MakeBoxes[Null,StandardForm|TraditionalForm]=""; The method above will make Null in all standard output appear as an empty string. If FullForm is used though, it will still show up as Null. As I'm sure you know, TableForm isn't a basic output form (it's a wrapper), so MakeBoxes[Null,TableForm]="" won't work.
