comment How to extract parts of (La)TeX document?
This has to be done by overloading the respective constructs, one by one. LaTeX does not provide a general interface for this kind of thing. It might just be that LaTeX3 does, but I don't know. If you post a minimal example demonstrating what you wish to achieve in particular, people can give hints how to acieve this.

comment Notes overflowing from marginpar to footer
@Raphink Thank you very much for awarding the bounty. I'll take that as motivation to implement the marginnote positioning after all. That way it may really become useful enough to go on CTAN.

comment Notes overflowing from marginpar to footer
@Speravir Understood. But \marginnote is not defined by the LaTeX kernel. I might add a warning if the package is loaded though.

comment Logotype without moving header on every page down
It is the primary function of \raisebox: To raise (or lower in case of a negative value) something relative to the baseline.

comment Logotype without moving header on every page down
I updated the answer with a way to move the logo down (without moving anything else). The fancyhdr package doesn't seem to offer an easy interface to changing the page geometry for accomodating a larger header. Try the geometry package for this.

comment Can I detect whether a footnote has been split?
That's also a good idea. But I'd need to remove it afterwards because I'm column-balancing footnotes...

@Speravir At the time being, this is incompatible with anything going in the margin. If code for positioning margin footnotes will ever be implemented, then other margin-positioned material could be integrated.

comment Macro to extract (typeset) 'plain text' from a command?
Are you looking for a general solution or is this mainly for bookmarks? The way you use it in the optional argument of \section doesn't seem to make sense - why would you want plain text section headings in the table of contents. A general solution would be very hard, for bookmarks most of the work is already done by \pdfstringdef.

comment Implementing a pullquotes algorithm in LaTeX
The flowfram package (ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/flowfram) might also be relevant to this.
