I have collected experience with TeX for quite some time and I am familiar with TeX programming. I have written pgfplots and several contributions to pgf/TikZ.

comment Convert image to code (TikZ? PSTricks?)
Google returned these: digitizer.sourceforge.net and getdata-graph-digitizer.com . Data files can be loaded using pgfplots, for example.

comment Pgfplots: 3D plot with shader=interp and opacity
I have checked the example with lots of different versions of pgfplots (1.3, 1.5, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11) and all worked fine. Are sure this is not simply a viewer deficiancy? Some viewers still have bugs, especially regarding shadings.

Ah - I must have misunderstood your request. I will look into the additional request when I find time.

comment Pgfplots externalizing figures: (inconsistent) white borders
Perhaps xticklabel style={overlay} helps (but check whether this will clip it away). It might also help to use \begin{tikzpicture}[trim axis right] as described in section "Alignment" in the pgfplots manual.

comment pgfplots cannot read file
What happens if you modify the file extension? Perhaps the TeX distribution on Macs appends .tex or some other stupidity... ?

comment How is TikZ meant to be pronounced? “tiks”, “tikz” or “tik-zee”?
The answer is consistent with the TikZ reference manual: section "Part III TikZ ist kein Zeichenprogramm" states that 'TikZ means "TikZ ist kein Zeichenprogramm."' --- this is just to provide the reference

comment Is it possible to expect pst-solides3d (in the future) to generate gradient mesh?
This is impossible by means of pgfplots. You may consider using mesh/interior colormap which allows to choose a different colormap for the "other side" of the patches

comment Is it possible to expect pst-solides3d (in the future) to generate gradient mesh?
Sure. In this case, the simplest case would be some math expression using point meta=<expression>. The actual colors can be configured using colormap (details in the manual pgfplots.sourceforge.net)
