The question is far too long to consider really and I don't understand the altered image at all. In this version of the MWE I have marked in red the baseline of the outer sample text, \box0 and \box2, which are all naturally aligned on that baseline without having to measure the height of box2 (which depends on the fonts used) . ...

Adding to what's already been said, while using xspace, I have discovered that if a macro which contains \xspace as its last argument is followed by text inside {}, then it does not insert a space between the two. In such a situation, one has to use the macro followed by an additional \ and then the text inside {}. For instance, if I have a macro defined as ...

I think you mean a column break rather at General Wavefunction? This could (should?) be achieved with \columnbreak to shift the content to the next column. There should be an additional \columnbreak at \section{Electromagnetism} and \section{Gravity}, in my point of view. I corrected some typos, but there might be others I could not find so far... There ...

For debugging put fbox around your picture (also, please always post complete documents) Here you see that the y coordinates you have used for your \put are all too high, the items will over-print the text above the picture, and leave a big space below. I also removed the [!t] which mainly acts to prevent page floats and makes the figure harder to place. ...

The major features of skips are that they can stretch, and are discarded at a linebreak, and can be removed with \unskip. A rule doesn't have any of these features, so in general they are less flexible although if you don't need those features then you could use a rule, but why not a skip or kern? The documented reason for the extra hskip\z@skip in \hspace ...

You can correct the spacings with etoolbox: \documentclass{gsm-l} \usepackage[papersize={160mm,240mm},inner=20mm, outer=15mm, vmargin=15mm]{geometry} \geometry{includeheadfoot} \usepackage{fouriernc} \usepackage{esvect} \usepackage{amsmath,enumitem} \usepackage{remreset} \usepackage{etoolbox} \usepackage{pgf,tikz} \usetikzlibrary{arrows} \makeatletter % ...

You can reduce the \beforechapskip locally: {\addtolength{\beforechapskip}{-2\baselineskip} \chapter{Introduction}} MWE: \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{showframe} \begin{document} \tableofcontents {\addtolength{\beforechapskip}{-2\baselineskip} \chapter{Introduction}} \Blindtext[3] \chapter{Next Chapter} \Blindtext[3] ...

[H] makes the environment not a float so parameters like \textfloatsep have no effect. The simplest thing to do is just to leave a blank line after each \end{table} followed by \vspace{-5mm} or whatever adjustment you need.

It's not using a list mechanism at all just paragraphs, so add \setlength\parskip{5cm} to the definition and the paragraphs will be spaced out.

If I understand you correctly, you like to change vertical space before of one chapter head. This you can obtain width: \documentclass[openany]{memoir} \usepackage{lipsum} \setlength\beforechapskip{9\baselineskip} \begin{document} \chapter{one} \lipsum[1-2] \setlength\beforechapskip{0\baselineskip} \chapter{two} ...

Instead of using a variable lengths such as \fill and \vfill, I'd use a fixed length, say, 2.5cm. \documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article} \usepackage[margin=0.75in]{geometry} \usepackage{multicol} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate} \itemsep=2.5cm \item Find all possible values of $x$ in $x^6 - 64 = 0$. \item Simplify each. ...

You should use a different command for “improperly placed differential”: \newcommand\ipdif[1]{\mathrm{d}#1\,} and use it only if followed by other symbols (choose another name, if you want). With \mathop{}\!\mathrm{d} you'd get an unwanted thin space between the integral symbol and the “d”. If you add a trailing \mathop{} you get two thin spaces between ...
