comment A command to end any environment?
Apologies. I should have written closing brace, not parenthesis.

comment A command to end any environment?
I would hate such an idea because if the body of the environment is long and I can only see the last part of the environment, then I cannot tell which environment is closed by the command. It's almost as bad as programming without environments: now all macro bodies are closed by a parenthesis. BTW: Do you just want a YES/NO answer? If correct, what to gain? If incorrect, then what is your real question?

comment How to make the Table of Contents, List of Figures, List of Tables to appear in Uppercase?
@hank In the titles as they are all upper case letters. It makes it easier to read them. See e.g. microtye package for more information about letterspacing (a.k.a. tracking) and how to enable it.

Maybe add letterspacing?

comment how can I put Caption with tabular
In your adjustbox environments, you should write 10\,nm, 40\,nm, and so on. Even better, typeset units with the siunitx package.

comment Draw a simple bracket and/or arc diagram
You can do that with TikZ. See the section about edges from parents in the TikZ manual (texdoc tikz).

comment What are some efficient LaTeX fonts? (fonts that are readable at small sizes/don't take up a lot of space)
I think the question requires clarification as it completely depends on your application. Some fonts that may be very readable at small sizes may not be of the right type. For example, there may be some monospaced font (that is very readable at small size) but you wouldn't want to use that for the running text. FWIW: Usually sans seriffed fonts require less horizontal space than seriffed fonts because they lack serifs. This is one of the reasons why some authors use them in captions.

Look for y-key in the index of the TikZ/pgf manual.

Not sure why you need it. You could use \\[\baselineskip].

comment Not enough space in table for fractions
Two suggestions. (1) Why not write 58/197 and so on? (2) All fractions are integral multiples of 1/197, so you could write everything in multiples of 1/197l this would make it easier to compare the probabilities in the same columns.

comment Aligning forest trees and getting the bounding box right
I am not sure about the caption problem. You draw the dashed lines with an overlay/remember picture, so TikZ doesn't use them when it determines the size of the bounding box. I imagine that if the dashed lines become too deep, you'll end up with problems with the caption. If you draw the braces before drawing the dashed lines, you can draw the braces without overlay/remember picture. That should avoid problems with the caption.
