comment Creating an .sty file that is equivalent to \input{file}?
Welcome to TeX.SX! The only special thing about .sty files is really that @ is allowed as a character in command names, without having to write \makeatletter...\makeatother. So rename your input file to myfile.sty and try \usepackage{myfile}. If you need more help then please post a minimal working example (MWE) showing what problems you encounter.

comment latex2rtf omits space symbols in every unicode paragraph until first ASCII symbol
Welcome to TeX.SX! The manual page mentions that utf8 support is limited and the STIX fonts need to be on the system to get some symbols.

comment Using aer.bst, three authors appear in the text with all three names listed (as opposed to “et al.”)
I see, the structure is rather different from that example. The function that needs changing is format.lab.names.abbr but I am not expert enough to do that correctly. Using makebst is a much simpler approach, but will not give you the exact same bibliography format. Otherwise, the modern recommendation is to switch to biblatex which is easier to coerce.

Welcome to TeX.SX! I think the same sort ideas as in tex.stackexchange.com/q/26575/15925 should work here.

comment Biblatex issues: citation nicknames showing up in document and no reference section being produced
@JosephWright Indeed, but it is deprecated, and the poster needs to give us more information about loading and set-up.

comment Biblatex issues: citation nicknames showing up in document and no reference section being produced
\bibliography is the command for the older interface to bibtex. In biblatex you need to use \addbibresource. Please a complete minimal document minimal working example (MWE) showing how you load and use biblatex.

comment Set hyphenation with polyglossia
Unfortunately, this does not happen for a \begin{hyphenrules}{english} in the preamble with lualatex. You new code example throws the error ! LuaTeX error ...e/2014/texmf-dist/tex/luatex/hyph-utf8/luatex-hyphen.lua:60: l uatex-hyphen: \language0 should be dumped in the format at the l.29 \selectlanguage{english} too

comment Set hyphenation with polyglossia
Just an extra note regarding variants, it is not quite clear what language argument one should pass to hypenrules. In the case of \setdefaultlanguage[variant=british]{english} it turns out one needs \begin{hyphenrules}{ukenglish}..., which I discovered by checking lua's messages in the log file.

Welcome to TeX.SX! As it stands this is just a subset of the answer given by Stefan KottWitz, and should at most be a comment on that answer.
