Definitely.  It increases your damage and boosts your resistances.  Why wouldn't you want it?  It has a huge 14m radius so pretty much covers the whole screen when active.  That means even if you set it to aggressive stance you're still going to benefit if you're a ranged character and it's away from you attacking foes.

But do you even need elemental damage if you're a melee fighter?

Again, depends on how you build them.  Have a look at the physical and elemental Thane and Sage builds here

They are built differently depending on whether you're concentrating on physical damage or elemental damage.

Other than Susceptability, is there another skill in the game that reduces the poison resistance of your enemies?

Not that I can recall.  Shen-Nong's Dark Medicine relic can reduce all resistances though and there are probably some items that might too.

What about fighting characters that use Earth as their other mastery, such as the Avenger, the Battlemage, Magician, etc. I would think that it would be easier to make them better physical fighters than those who take Storm due to Brimstone increasing physical damage whereas Storm's Nimbus tree focuses on elemental damage without any physical aspect.

I would guess they can be built either way: phyiscal or elemental depending on what you take.  Even with Storm it can be done.

this is an older calculator from before Atlantis was released. Why is Static Charge maxed? Why is there a point in both Summon Wisp and Eye of the Storm?

Yes, it is, but it can still be viable depending on what may or may not have been changed.  Wisp is taken for its synergy since Eye of the Storm helps to protect you.  And I guess you're going to have to have some elemental damage using Storm as one of your masteries.

wouldn't it be better to max Heart of Frost for the slowdown on your enemies?

You could do, don't think it would hurt.

I'm pretty sure Rogue's Trance of Wrath reduces poison resistance. It says flatly: "reduced enemy resistances" so one would assume poison is included in that.

Rogue's Trance of Wrath?  Dream's Trance of Wrath.
