I've moved around some of your reply to make it easier to answer.

Can someone say please, are there any disadvantages or advantages between the next method and the methods from the above posts?

Code:
sudo su
If you want a login shell for root, try sudo -i instead.

Code:
chown root:root /etc/sudoers.d/scriptname
chown root:root /usr/local/bin/scriptname
chmod 0700 /usr/local/bin/scriptname
chmod 0440 /etc/sudoers.d/scriptname
Yes, that looks good, depending on the details of the command. You have the script out of the way where only root can change it.

Instead of changing both configuration files, I'd put the following in /etc/sudoers.d/scriptname and leave /etc/sudoers alone.

Code:
username ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/scriptname
