I think it's fine. I've never met an Elisabeth with an "S"--only Elizabeths with "Z"s!--but Elisabeth is by far my favorite spelling, and I would easily have opted for Eliza or Izzy as a nn for it (although I probably would have sprung for Issy rather than Izzy, just because I like it more). I think Liza is more of a stretch--maybe because it doesn't have that beginning "El" to tie it to the original Elisabeth?--but Elisabeth nn Liza still could work, I think. I think Elisabeth nn Lizzie's adorable, too. I've really grown to love Lizzie.

I think it's fine. I don't really draw much distinction between Elizabeth and Elisabeth to begin with, so I think both Elisabeth nn Lizzie/Zibby or Elizabeth nn Lissa/Bess are totally okay.
When both spellings are accepted as classics, you can probably use any spelling nickname (same would go for Catherine/Katherine nn Cat/Kate/Cath/Kitty)★ close to my heart ★ Billie Cordelia - Jemima Eilidh - May Margaret - Estella Agnes - Jessamine Martha
Emmett Jack - Alec Huw - Wilfred Nicholas - Rufus Kielder - Harrison Tadhg - Robert Fox - Wes Oberon
