I wonder if in the future Prince Nikolai's wife and Prince Felix's wife will have the title of Princess?

Technically they are entitled to get the title of princess, and so are any children.
However that is up to the monarch.
So it is very likely that Nikolai and Felix - and Henrik, will take the title of say Count de Montepezat and drop their princely title upon marriage. So we avoid ending up having flocks of royals roaming streets.

It is established convention that the wife and unmarried children of a prince with a place in the order of succession have the title princess or prince, but to the best of my knowledge it is not formalized in statute law.

I am not sure if Denmark has developed common law in regards to royal titles, as in the UK. It seems not to be the case, as it apparently took the Queen some time to decide that Marie Cavallier would take the title of princess upon marriage. Quoting from a summary of Prince Joachim and Marie Cavallier's press conference held in 2007:
Queen Margrethe has only recently decided Marie will have the title of princess. Joachim said this was not his decision to make, but another's (meaning the Queen).

Yes, the only title the monarch has no control over, is the title of Crown Prince/ss, because the person holding that title has a specific status mention in the Law of Succession and in the Constitution.

In theory QMII could have decided not grant Mary the title of Crown Princess, but that would be most sensational!

The title of Crown Prince/ss is not mentioned in the Law of Succession or in the Constitution, but the term tronfølgeren (heir to the throne) is mentioned in Art. 7 of the Constitution.

Correct and that's the word I should have used.

There are a number of very specific titles for the Tronfølger:
Kronprinsen (The Crown Prince because there can only be one. And now also Kronprinsessen) who is (now) the oldest child of the monarch regardless of gender.
Arveprinsen, who is a relative who is the nearest in line for the throne after the monarch.
Tronarvingen, who is the heir to the throne. Which pedantically speaking is not exactly the same as Tronfølgeren, which simply means the next to sit on the throne. A Tronfølger can in contrast to an (bloodline) heir be appointed by the Parliament, if there are no one else left in the Line of Succession. - They covered everything when they wrote down these paragraphs!
But of course that's for nerds.
