comment lscape not working for the Table
It should rotate the table, if it does not please make an example that demonstrates the problem, that we can run locally. Note some pdf viewers will auto-rotate the view back so the table appears in normal orientation when viewed.

comment Set line spacing to point size
@Sverre even if they don't care, you have the option of giving them what they asked for:-)

comment Set line spacing to point size
@Sverre they would not be affected if you just set baselineskip, so if you were in a \large area and then do \fontsize{11pt}{12pt}\selectfont... the text would go back to 11pt but any equations would have lots of space, \normalsize tries to ensure everything put back to normal.

comment Latex (LyX) /pdftex - Change file name based on file content
why don't you save the source with a more meaningful name than newfile ??? then the pdf will have same name as your source.

comment Abbreviating commands with shorter commands, launchable from the body
impossible to say in this generality. if your command is called \C why not just issue \C at the point you need it? If it only works at the start because it sets global document settings, then hard to see how you can activate it mid document

comment Set line spacing to point size
@Sverre \fontsize is permanent if you do not enclose it in a group, but setting \normalsize is, as you see, more than just setting the default font and baselineskip, it makes sense to specify other dependent lengths at the same time. Of course you do not have to do that but then when some figure or whatever issues \normalsize to get into a standard state, less things are reset.

comment Change \endhead in the middle of a longtable
yes wondered about that too:-) As always there's some variablity in when that gets executed relative to the output routine breaking the page, but as there is typically no vertical flexibility in a table, in practice the output routine always triggers in the only possible breakpoint so this is probably safe enough if chunksize is small

comment How to lstinput a text file path and get content of ext file into pdf
You should make the example be an example of the problem not an example that works. If you are getting \lstinputlisting{C:/Temp/test.txt} in the output you must have put that command in the wrong place, where it is being read as text not as a command, such as inside a listings or verbatim. But you leave us to guess...

comment Passing string to macro without interpreting it
why do you say "Due to the underscores LaTeX requires math mode" ? that is only the case if you are typesetting. If you are using those characters as a file path there should be no problem. You have not provided a usable example, so we can not reproduce any error you get, and you didn't say what error you got, so impossible to answer really.

comment How is a page produced in the output routine?
@IgorLiferenko you show that in your first code, write an output routine that does not add it.

comment How is a page produced in the output routine?
@IgorLiferenko you can make such a box but plain tex doesn't: the footline is \def\makefootline{\baselineskip24\p@\lineskiplimit\z@\line{\the\footline}} it doesn't not make the box just because \the\footline is empty

comment How is a page produced in the output routine?
@IgorLiferenko it's directly the output of plain.tex, no computation is involved, for example the headline is defined by \def\makeheadline{\vbox to\z@{\vskip-22.5\p@ \line{\vbox to8.5\p@{}\the\headline}\vss}\nointerlineskip} and \the\headline is empty in this case, so you get exactly the boxes and glue that you show.
