Q: What does Might we not consider those less fortunate than ourselves? mean?
A: That is complex older style phrasing.

Basically, "might" is being used similar to how "could" is often used.

Suggesting that "might we not consider" is actually counter-intuitive phrasing, it is saying it that way for emphasis and nuance but it sounds like the opposite of what it actually is saying. It is actually suggesting "could we consider..."

And then "those less fortunate than ourselves" means "those people who are less fortunate/blessed (not doing as well in life, often means financially poor) as ourselves?" So, it's talking about people who are poor, compared to the speaker.

It basically suggests, "maybe we should think about the poor people." / "maybe we should do something to help the less fortunate, the less well-off." But it is being a bit coy about it.

Something like this might be used for understatement, to emphasis how self-involved or cluelessly out of touch the speaker thinks the person the other person is being. Hinting at them.

Or it could be meant to guilt the other person into being charitable for once.

It could be suggesting that "this should be obvious, I cannot believe no one has brought it up yet, we should really do better."

It could also be used in a conversation where someone is complaining about their privileged life, and the speaker is making a point about getting some perspective, about how they do not actually have it the worst that can be. That perhaps there are people who have it even worse than the person who is complaining, and isn't that a novel thought? So being sarcastic but masking it with politeness.

The details would depend on context, but nuance and subtext is pretty much guaranteed.
Q: What does Would you consider working somewhere else? mean?
A: Simply put,
"Would you want to work at another place"
Q: What does " consider it done " mean?
A: It's a way of saying you will do something immediately.
The person you're saying this to should just go on as though the task was already done, because you can be very trusted to complete it very soon.
