it gives an error in texlive 2016 presumably your laptop has older versions of one or more of the packages.

comment The difference between `\the\numexpr` and `\number\numexpr`
I don't think there are any differences assuming the csnames refer to the primitives., but would need to cite etex web sources to really justify an answer:-)

comment How do I remove extraneous whitespace after a section heading?
note that latex never tries anything unless it is instructed to do so. If you use \flushbottom (or a class that uses \flushbottom) then it will align the bottom line of each column.

comment Why does the align environment right-align by default?
who ever aligns anything without specifying an alignment point? In an align the part before the & is right aligned towards the alignment point the part after the & is left aligned. that's how the alignment works. You have a display with only the left hand side of each row.

comment Prohibiting figures from the left column
@Hugh that should be fine (no time to test now though)

comment Prohibiting figures from the left column
@Hugh yes although I was looking at the code not the doc (there is a comment % Floatpage bit, local: as well as lack of \global :-)

comment Prohibiting figures from the left column
@Hugh not global for p column settings (see \@floatplacement in latex.ltx)

comment How do floats work (internally)
a float environment is like \savebox all macros are resolved at the point the environment is met and the content typeset into a box register.

comment Forcing figures to be displayed at top if page even if textheight is set to a custom value
you could \setcounter{topnumber}{1} then at most one top float is allowed in a column.

comment Forcing figures to be displayed at top if page even if textheight is set to a custom value
it's not really related to changing textheight, figures are assigned to the left hand column if they meet the constraints specified, this is done before the second column text is set.

comment Spaces between lines inconsistent in Word2Tex inserted in Latex
Impossible to say without seeing the code but in general conversion from word to tex (whichever translator you use) is tricky and error prone and likely to lose formatting, it is not that surprising if you need to hand edit the generated tex afterwards.

comment Find files in subdirectories to use with \input
@jan if you set it in texmf.cnf you need to set the whole thing rather than just .//: as that is where it's set, in the file returned by kpsewhich texmf.cnf or on the command line (with a shell such as bash) you can simply do TEXINPUTS=.//: pdflatex yourfile.tex also kpsexpand '$TEXINPUTS' will show the currently active setting
