comment close all environments?
While that might be possible, it would not really be desirable. One of the main differences between LaTeX and plain TeX is that in LaTeX large parts of the document are presented in balanced \begin...\end pairs, whereas TeX often uses single macros, making it easier to parse the material, and giving access points for the beginning and of an element. If you are annoyed by the typing effort, it is better to use an editor that inserts these constructs as pairs for you.

OK, but confusing. However your "answer" still sounds like a step on the process to diagnosing the problem, rather than a solution.

I think you need to determine what the user and or group of the created mf process is. It is that process that needs correct persmissions to write to ~/.texmf-var

I don't understand your answer then. What you do you mean by "glue"? It has a pretty specific meaning in the tex, but does not make sense here.

comment A tree with complicated nodes as each child in tikz
Please post code that compiles, preferably as a minimal working example including \documentclass and loading the necessary packages. As it stands your final example does not produce a valid tree: for example node should be used instead of \node except at the root.

The essential problem seems to be \url{\i}. Not sure how to solve that.

Welcome TeX.SX! Using bib files and bibtex or biber is the best way to deal with this and will open up more functionality for you.

comment Histogram with separate group of columns and common caption
Welcome to TeX.SX! I have included your image. You should look at the pgfplots package and/or pgfplotstable. Usually questions should include an example of the code you have tried so far.
