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 Stopping the accidental absorption of digits into literals
@patrick-rutkowski assuming the assignment happens (ie you don't have \@gobble\foo=2 etc then \tw@ and 2 are similar (except the first is faster) but 2\relax leaves ` \relax token in the input stream since the assignment isn't expandable it's not so easy to come up with places that makes a different but \afterassignment\bar\foo=2\relax\othermacro \bar will see \relax but \afterassiggment\bar\foo=2\othermacro it will see \othermacro

comment I'm not able to add a figure
your posted example doesn't load a graphics package at all but I guess you have \usepackage{graphics} but you need \usepackage{graphicx} with an x for the width= syntax.

comment How to force part of a paragraph title to correctly align with right marging (using e.g. \hfill)
You haven't provided any usable example in your question so it is hard but basically copy the definition of \subsubsection (or just use \subsubsection) do you really have so many levels in your document you need chapter,section,subsection,subsubsection and paragraph?

comment How to force part of a paragraph title to correctly align with right marging (using e.g. \hfill)
\paragraph is an inline heading so it puts horizontal space after itself before what (is intended to be) the first word of the paragraph. If you want to redefine it to be a display heading it is better to do that than to use horrible markup like \mbox{}\\ (also \noindent does nothing after \\ )

what is the intention of the \NewPage command (which looks wrong) Please always provide a complete small document that shows the problem.

comment Align text in multiple rotated multicolumns
The error is \parbox[t]{\multirow but hard to guess what you intended \multirow can not be in a \parbox and a \parbox needs a width argument.

comment Why the renewcommand doesn't work as I expect?
every question should have a complete example document if you expect people to actually test their answers. Without knowing how proof is defined (which depends on information you have not supplied) I don't see how it's possible to even guess an answer.
