comment references with number and names
isn't it biblatex's way of saying that it cannot find the reference. Instead of printing [??] it prints [key].

comment No PDF output file and no error message
Welcome to TeX.sx. I assume when you say that "the previous PDF is not replaced", you actually have the previous pdf opened already in a reader. This can be an issue on some systems and some readers where the reader will lock the file. If you close the file and recompile, it should write the new pdf properly.

comment LuaLaTeX changes font smoothing with polyglossia or fontspec (and math looks weird)
Which pdf viewer are you using? This looks very much like a viewer issue rather than anything else. in Adobe reader, they all look identical. I suspect, it is the difference in rendering between type1 fonts (used without fontspec) and OFT fonts (used with it). The math part always look the same on both as the type 1 font is used in both cases

comment Clickable URLs: no click possible after the line break
Just to clarify, the url package does not make the link clickable, it only formats it and allow it to break in a sensible place. However, some pdf readers will parse the text and if a url is detected will allow the user to click on the link, but that link is not part of the pdf. hyperref on the other hand, does create clickable links and not only for urls but also for internal links such as references, toc, labels, etc... Additionally, hyperref will only allow to break links by default if the pdftex engine is used, if you are using latex>dvipdfm then you need the breaklinks option.

comment Writing Japanese in Latex2e
from the comments, the requirements for psfrag, eps, postscript macros and so forth, using pdflatex is probably not going to work here.

If your original bash script to compile the english version is not too long you might want to consider adding it to your question.

comment Writing Japanese in Latex2e
your document may be compiled using xelatex as a straight replacement of latex in your shell script, but then again it might not. You may need to work a lot on your preamble to make the fonts or other bits. This is a problem with workflow that have been inherited from years of usage. xelatex should compile straight to pdf but in two integrated steps by creating an xdvi file first and then creating the pdf from that. it should run the dvixpdfm command internally so you should not need to run it yourself.

can I ask why you need to follow the dvi->ps->pdf workflow as opposed to compiling directly into pdf?

comment How to number and centralize the heading “reference”
@Werner I kind of realised as much, but even in that discussion the details are rather sparse. The issue I have is whether all sections are already centred or only the Reference one should be. If the class/document already defines \section{} to be centred, then using the tocbibind package with the numbib option should be enough. But if writing for a journal there may be other options available to number the reference section (e.g., the class could be using something like natbib or something more bespoke).

Could you please add a mwe including which class you are using. It would help a lot in finding a solution.

comment Latin Modern looks different in pdfLaTeX and XeLaTeX
This is very much reader dependent. pdflatex and xelatex use different font types (type1 postscript for pdflatex, and otf for xelatex). The readers may handle these differently and therefore may look different on screen.

comment Europass Resume Icons
A while back I started playing with creating a class for the new europass style but could not find the time to finish it. However, what I did have the time to do was to create a font with the icons for it. It is available on github at github.com/ArTourter/europass if you are interested.

comment Latex in Ubuntu - alternative to Adobe Acrobat
@cfr I was mainly suggesting this as a way to test the pdf. If whatever is done on it works in adobe reader on Linux, it should work on windows. I have used pdftk for that sort of things and it works fine.

comment Latex in Ubuntu - alternative to Adobe Acrobat
Hi, Welcome to TeX.sx. This is not really on topic for this site. However, there is a version of Adobe reader for linux available, although not directly linked from the adobe website, but from their ftp server: ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/unix/9.x/9.5.5/enu
