comment Make parts of a pgfplots outside of the bounding box visible
OK. Regarding your question about the parameters: they allow TeX to relax its strict handling of overful boxes, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/31301/… for a related question. You can also uncomment these two lines to see what happens.

comment Can TeX generate “heap dumps” to analyze+optimize out-of-memory situations?
Thanks for the answer! Given the age of this question and the total amount of answers, I suppose that your doubts regarding the availability of a positive answer are adequate. But why should a static memory pool as such be an argument against a human readable heap dump? After all, static pools are not so uncommon -- even java has it (although it rebuilds it from time to time).

comment Plots large number of data
You have a point. Why don't you write it as separate answer? My answer gives hints regarding best-practises how to import raster images, yours might be the better answer to the question.

comment Plots large number of data
@AubreyBlumsohn That depends on your data's smoothness. I have seen time series in which compression needs adaptive compression methods which are beyond "infinitely simple" (and might still need huge sample sizes). From my point of view, you can either invest smartness + research into a suitable compression in which case a pgfplots solution would be preferrable, or you can invest time into a solution with braindead raster images for the densely sampled time series. Feel free to elaborate on an answer regarding the smart compression approach (perhaps the OP can provide sample data).

comment Add break node to plot in pgfplots
Welcome at tex.sx! Your questions sounds like a near-duplicate to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/46422/axis-break-in-pgfplots (although it is an important information for me that you have an application which does not involve bar plots).

comment Forcing a common z-scale in a surface groupplot
Adding point meta min and point meta max to your axis configurations allows to sync the color maps and color bars. In order to place + align a single color bar, you may want to consider section "4.9.13 Color Bars Outside Of an Axis" of the pgfplots reference manual and, in particular, the key colorbar to name combined with \ref

comment Build errors with tikz externalize
With high probability, this issue is the one described in the TikZ manual, "50.4.1 Support for Labels and References In External Files" : these external references need extra steps during the externalization (described in that section)

can you show us the content of MWE-figure_crossref0.log? It should contain the root cause of the failure.

Welcome at tex.sx! You may want to take a look at pgfplots.sourceforge.net and its section "4.6.4 Scatter Plots" (below Three Dimensional Plot Types).

comment precompile molecules for faster compilation
chemfig is based on tikz, and the standard way to avoid unnecessary recompilations in tikz is to use either \usetikzlibrary{external} or the standalone package. I would expect that both work (although I am unfamiliar with chemfig). The external lib should work as soon as you write \usetikzlibrary{external}\tikzexternalize into the preamble and compile with pdflatex -shell-escape .... The standalone package requires more work, but might result in a better reusable molecule database. If you need more details, you will have to edit your question to show us what you have.
