I have been using LaTeX since 1987 or thereabouts and have been on the LaTeX3 team since before we released LaTeX2e. I'm currently somewhat inactive in the LaTeX project but show up in related fields, I'm an editor of the MathML spec for example.

I am employed by NAG ltd, but any opinions expressed here are personal.

comment What is the best way to achieve Figure - Comment structure in article class?
It is impossible to help if you talk in riddles. LaTeX does not want anything it just follows instructions. You have not said what you did or what happens, every question should include a complete small example document that shows the problem. If you use \includegraphics not surrounded by figure it is positioned using exactly the same rules as a letter such as X is positioned it does not move out of sequence and is just tyoeset in the position it appears in the source file.

@DoomStone duplicate questions can't be answered, glad you got your document working though.

comment What is the best way to achieve Figure - Comment structure in article class?
This answer is contradictory. the figure environment is a float when the comments above suggested not using floats they mean don't use figure just use \includegraphics if you do not use floats you would not have \end{figure}

comment Force \displaystyle throughout document (including subscripts and fractions)
@Mico no but it's an easy way to get the more reasonable parts of the request:-)

comment Force \displaystyle throughout document (including subscripts and fractions)
just use \dfrac instead of \frac (amsmath package)

comment Slanted fractions
There is no need to loop to make multiple \! that's just slow and inefficient. \! is \mskip-\thinmuskip so if you want 3 times that do \mskip-3\thinmuskip no need to do \!\!\!

comment Slanted fractions
The spacing here is really strange with far too much vertical separation for a slanted fraction, it's had to recognise them as fractions at all. The point of the slanted style is to take up less vertical space than a standard fraction

comment macro to showcase newly defined macros
You could read it verbatim and then use \scantokens but scantokens can bite, I'd use the one in the answer or the one in the comments:-)

comment image position problem
since you have no captions, and don't want the images to move why are you using figure and subfigre at all, not just \includegraphics?

comment image position problem
You are missing the second argument of \newenvironment (defining the end code) it is not an error as it takes the blank line you have before \lhead as the argument so defines teh end code to be \par

comment image position problem
article class has \setcounter{totalnumber}{3} so only allows three floats per text page by default, but you can reset that....

@nrs an alternative would be to use \verb|$\alpha$| $alpha$

comment macro to showcase newly defined macros
@nrs tex has no idea whether you entered $\alpha$ or $\alpha $ that information just isn't recorded. It always puts a space out so that if you entered $\alpha a$ it shows $\alpha a$ not $\alphaa$
