When I pool mine, do my payments come from the pool operator's personal account? From the pool's wallet? Or from somewhere else?

When using P2Pool, the payments appear in bitcoin-qt as though I had mined the block myself.

(cf. the Bitcoin StackExchange question)

It depends on the implementation.  As you saw p2pool pays you directly from the generated 25BTC.  Other pools pay you from their wallets when coins mature - Kano does this.

So does Eligius, it seems; see, e.g., this. AntPool, however, takes the entire reward to one address; see, e.g., this. That latter method seems much more prone to fraud.

Paying in the coinbase and paying from the coinbase makes no difference to fraud at all.
The pool makes the transaction in both cases ...

Paying later really isn't much difference either since you can look at the payout method and (if related to the payout) the block find history, and determine what you should be paid.
All 3 are transactions created by the pool and similar fraud can be done in all 3.
