comment Why does \show\jobname result in \jobname and not the name of the file?
Pretty hefty supplement I'd say. I almost gave the answer to you for writing a more detailed, time-consuming explanation. Nonetheless, David's also provides useful information. I'd be interested in understanding how to use \jobname in xstring's \IfEq{}{}{}{}, for example, where it needs to be expanded at a very specific time in order to be true, like why \IfEq{\jobname}{<nameoffile>}{TRUE}{FALSE} does not become TRUE. It seems \jobname can be expanded, but only sometimes (when the log is written-if I understand you correctly.)

comment How can I expand the font size within a heading (section, subsection, etc.)?
Thanks for the most recent edits, I was just wondering about wrapping the sections with \makeatletter and \makeatother. That solidified my understanding. I assume the reason why the other code is better is to keep all category code changes out of the body?

comment How can I implement xstring's \IfBeginWith equivalently in a non-user-level macro?
It would seem \regex_match:nnTF is a more recent addition to LaTeX 3 than the version I have because I am getting LaTeX has been asked to use a command \regex_match:nnTF, but this has not been defined yet.

You might want to complete your minimal code. The community here is really big on that. You might also want to change the title into a question. Just pretend you are on jeopardy.

comment Text without hyphenation with Tikz
Is the \hyphenchar\font=1 necessary to restore hyphenation, or is the \hyphenchar\font=1 actually localized? I ask because you called it a global switcher. At first glance, it seems to me that it would be a change valid only within the tikzpicture's scope.
