I don't understand the error either (it's coming from QtWebKit) :D

Try doing file:///home/... though, otherwise I think that'd be a
relative path.

Try adding a .html extension - unfortunately QtWebKit doesn't do
content sniffing.

That's not possible yet. It might be with autocmds once I get to
reviving this PR (which was deferred until after the QtWebEngine stuff
is done): https://github.com/The-Compiler/qutebrowser/pull/1155

However, I don't think userscripts are the right fit for this, you'll
likely run into more issues.

Once autocmds are in, you could run some javascript via :jseval which
does the replacements you want, or you wait for the plugin API and
write a plugin doing that.
