comment Display ' apostrophe
Is that actually the proper character to use for an apostrophe? So should I always be writing it\textquotesingle s if I want to be technically correct?

You can replace the combination of \defbeamertemplate and \setbeamertemplate with \defbeamertemplate*.

comment trouble getting Tikz matrix to compile
What exactly is the relevant change that prevented the original code from working? I see some differences between your code and the code in the question but I can't tell what the fix is.

comment Authors names at the beginning of article
Does the journal offer or suggest a particular LaTeX style or template? If so, you should use it. Generally you don't get to pick your own style to submit to a journal.

comment Beamer/TikZ/PGF: Applying a key only for one slide (similar to uncover or only)
@ManuelKuehner when you define a style using .code args, the definition you put in is actually (nearly) arbitrary LaTeX code, and thus you can use \only there. But the stuff you put in square brackets following \draw cannot just be anything. It has to be the name of a style. (A PGF key, technically.)

comment Controlling what \cite prints
Not sure about the error. What TeX distribution and version do you have? I'm on TeXLive 2013 so if your version is different, that could account for the incompatibility. For abbreviating journal titles, that is straightforward but I'd suggest asking a separate question about it. (Search first, it might already be on the site.)

comment Controlling what \cite prints
You can write a BibTeX style by hand; makebst is just a tool to aid the process. But if you were using \footcite or \fullcite, those are biblatex commands, so it might be worth just transitioning to biblatex. I'll see what I can come up with.

comment Controlling what \cite prints
The gist of it is that you need to use a suitable BibTeX style. Ideally, you can find one already made which produces the kind of output you want. If not, you'll have to write one, which is a pain in the butt because BibTeX syntax is rather complex. I'll leave it to someone who can identify this particular style to provide an actual answer. (A thought: would you consider using biblatex instead?)

comment Kile can't locate texmf-dist packages
This is one possible fix, but not the only way, because on my system (Kubuntu) TEXMFDIST is not set but I don't have any trouble finding packages. I'm not sure offhand of the details though.

comment Drawing simple graph pattern with Tikz
For what it's worth, I don't think anyone learns TikZ by doing a deep walkthrough. It's not something you sit down and dedicate time to study. People learn TikZ bit by bit, as needed, in order to create good-looking pictures. So I think what you're doing now is the perfect way to start learning. Just start with the goal of making a diagram, and then learn whatever little piece of TikZ syntax you need to in order to do it. Then repeat as necessary.

comment Command to get N equally spaced dots in mathmode
@PeterGrill well actually it only needs \usepackage{pgffor}, not all of tikz (but also see comments on this answer).
