comment pgfmathsetmacro increases border size
Yes, just add them after the options of \begin{tikzpicture} or use PGFmath function but can only be used in places which are parsed by PGFmath (most places with-in TikZ). For example: declare function={a=0; b=0; c(\i)=\i^2;}.

comment pgfmathsetmacro increases border size
Add % after the \pgfmathsetmacro{\?}{0} lines. If these macros are only for the next tikzpicture put them behind \begin{tikzpicture}. This keeps them local to this picture and you get rid of any white-space problems.

comment How can I add a box in an electric circuit?
Similar examples: Making FFT Figure using LaTeX Tikz, Tikz surrounding box with automatically drawn border “ports”. I guess, a proper definition is in order. You can also mis-use the European gates replacing the actual text and use only the first and last input anchor. — In this case it might be just the easiest to add a simple rectangular node to the right of your two lines.

comment Add a word to the suggested words list in dictionary
@kwoxer How many words do you have that needs replacing? You could use the Replace function of any editor and maybe again AutoHotkey with a list of words. I don't really know the best way here either …

comment Add a word to the suggested words list in dictionary
@kwoxer You can find these macros in the texstudio.ini file in AppData\Roaming\texstudio (Win 7). The dictionaries can be found in the installation directory of TeXstudio. The "Add to dictionary" function is more a "Ignore this purposely wrong written word if you find it again" (I don't know where these are stored).

comment Add a word to the suggested words list in dictionary
You could add a macro (in TeXstudio, not in TeX) that replaces Numenor with Númenor on-the-fly without you needing to interact with it. If you want this not only in your TeX editor but system-wide take a look at AutoHotkey.

comment Aligning edge labels horizontally with tikz package
@Kostas No, I did not (but only the arrows.meta library and the node contents key from TikZ itself). Do you have the newest (3.0.0 from Dec 2013) version of TikZ/PGF installed? You can check easily with \pgfversion somewhere in your document.

comment Using loops with chains?
I'm giving up on the graphs solution. I don't understand the concept of it (neither of the subgraphs).

comment Using loops with chains?
@DRi In this case just add fill=none to the nodes with the M. Or use a different style (say monomer M so that it doesn't get the fill appended).

comment TikZ: Drawing an arc from an intersection to an intersection
I can't really follow what is needed here, but these question seem related: Tikz: joining points on a circle, What's the easiest way to draw the arc defined by three points in TikZ?

comment TikZ: Define pattern with reference to external picture
@Tarass Hm, seems fishy. The cross file I have used in my example was certainly a PDF. Are you compiling with pdfLaTeX?

comment Drawing cycles using TikZ
Use the line width as an option of the path (e.g. behind \draw), not as an option to grid. With the backgrounds library, there are additional possibilities to draw a grid behind a finished TikZ picture.
