comment Problem with amsmath's `gather` environment
Use \raggedcolumns to fix this - you haven't provided many places for the columns to break...

comment Underline/Bold/Highlight multiple names in a bibliography
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Cutting and pasting your code in to a standard document gives me the expected behaviour, not that you report.

comment How to correctly display and separate the author names in a bibliographic entry?
Better format for the author names in the bib file is Last, First: author = {Smith, Jane and Doe, John}, particularly when names can have "von" parts

comment How to force nodes on different lines to have equal y-positioning
Updated - the drawn paths are of different lengths, but one needs to place the nodes on ones of fixed length - now provided by an edge operation.

comment Page range in TOC chapter entry in scrbook
A simple but not pretty solution is to copy the code provided for "section" and replace each occurance of "section" by "subsection". A better solution, would be a rewrite of the code, so only the chapter contents entries are affected.

comment Left bar in the margin of an environment with figures/tables
The main problem is that figure is a floating environment, so may well be moved out of the area used by the proof. By the way, you want to try the mdframed package instead, but that won't solve the floating problem.

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. I see no problem with your code, apart from suprious ; after the legends, and the output is fine when I run in a pstricks compatible way. Which engine are you using? Have you seen tex.stackexchange.com/q/8413/15925?
