I'm not sure what options are available for tournament setup, but assuming
we can enter skill levels manually...

I think it would be hard to pick perfect ratings, but I bet it wouldn't be
too difficult to generate a guess at ELO/kyu levels based on past
performance. Inputting something like ELO/2 (or similar fractional ELO)
might be a good way to start out without giving too much handicap. Future
tournaments could then be based on how well that works out.

The first obvious question is then: how will you determine the handicaps?

As to the "large gaps in strength": the actual rating of Zen is 1 stone
above abakus, which is 1 stone above HiraBot. That seems to conflict
with your classification. I am not sure it's possible to draw these
conclusions by observing <= 3 games from every matchup.
