comment Help compiling with XeLaTeX. A few errors
If you don't have code listings why are you loading minted ?

comment Help compiling with XeLaTeX. A few errors
It would not make sense to activate -shell-escape by default, the whole point is that external programs are prevented for security reasons unless you explicitly allow them

the minted program needs to call the external python program pygmentize to syntax highlight the code listings. Such calls are not allowed unless you specify -shell-escape

comment Is there a way to insert \caption{} inside a multicolumn on top of a longtable?
@EliskaVlckova the caption package offers a more sane and documented way to customise caption styling for normal and longtable captions, but it can't (I think) change the c to |c| as you requested so to do that need to open up longtable internals and redefine LT@makecaption, and having done that you need to directly address the styling at the same place rather than attempt to use the caption package definitions.

@EliskaVlckova not really, I wasn't expecting people to poke there, but it's my code so it's probably OK if I suggest a redefinition:-)

{#1{#2: }#3} to {#1{\large\bfseries#2: }\large\bfseries#3}

comment Why is there an overfull \vbox with only \sub- \subsub- \sections?
this is a faq (I'll find the duplicate in a minute) but latex prevent a page break after a section head, so if you only have headings and no text there is no legal page to break the page so it gets overfull.

comment Do I risk breaking documents by updating my TeX distribution?
yes and yes. Package authors almost always take compatibility very seriously but any update of any software has risks of breakage.

comment what is the equivalent of \reserveinserts in latex 2015
@Maïeul that is same as pstricks example I posted above \reserveinserts wouldn't have helped anyway as you already used up too many counters before your package loaded, just move eledmac before biblatex

comment Perl, Python, Lua or just Latex/Xetex
Your question is not very clear, python my be simpler or more complicated than tex macros depending on your programming tastes but python doesn't typeset documents so it is not clear how it helps (there are bridges between python and tex but two-language programming is rarely simpler than programming either language separately). Most people typesetting documents with latex don't program tex macros at all, they just markup the text of their documents, so if your aim is to produce documents rather than produce latex extension packages your question seems misplaced.

comment how to fix a section position
@jon NOTE! The original version of placeins.sty acted like it was loaded with the option "[above]" specified. seems like I haven't looked at the documentation since before 2005:-)

comment how to fix a section position
@jon reading documentation! that's cheating:-) I'll delete my comment sorry:-) (although flafter is still probably the package of choice here)

comment how to fix a section position
To stop a figure coming before the position of the figure environment use the flafter package.

comment Is there any method available to automatically show the ruby when writing sentences with Japanese Kanji?
The site furiganizer.com will add the ruby using html markup (nested tables not proper html ruby) but from there it wouldn't be too hard to run a translation script to generate the tex markup.

comment Is it true that when using \newline to stay in horizontal mode, the information will be on the same page?
@barbarabeeton \\ does not go into vertical mode here but it does in some other contexts, notably center

unless your tiny text is always one line it should have a \par before the } it would be closer to the rule in any case if you do that as it would be set with its own baslineskip not that of normalsize

comment what is the equivalent of \reserveinserts in latex 2015
@Maïeul no \reserveinserts is not defined by default, so don't tell the user to use that, I added a code suggestion just now as a comment on the question)

comment what is the equivalent of \reserveinserts in latex 2015
eledmac specifies a whole load of packages twice (xargs,etoolbox,suffix,xstring,etoolbox,ifluatex,ragged2e} and does \reserveinserts{32} twice so allocating 64 inserts. It would be better if it just specified the packages once, and did \ifx\reserveinserts\@undefined\else\reserveinserts{32}\fi

The MWE you added is not useful, but a real example might have been, which has a real mapping from kanji to the equivalent ruby annotation (or even give a link to such a mapping if it exists in public readable form)

There is the luatexja-ruby package if lualatex is a possibility, but I can't tell if that is automatic or not texdoc latexja-ruby is a little challenging for me to read:-)
