Please see Q52372 and Q8386. For your actual question, see Q87454.

comment Shading applied only to the first element with foreach
++ is not a calculation specification but denotes a relative coordinate (which all following relative coordinate specifications are relative to, in contrast to +). Compare to (A) -- ++ (6*\x,0).

No, ([xshift=<value> cm]<sth>) is not the same as ([xshift=(0:<value>)<sth>), except when x=(0:1cm) (the default). In my eyes, a fundamental difference in TikZ/PGF. But, yes, that doesn't concern OP's problem (which you have identified correctly).

If the x vector has been changed (say x=2cm or x=(30:1cm)) then (6*\x,0) and (6*\x cm,0) will not be the same anymore.

I usually don't like to mix canvas and xy coordinates: I'd use either ([shift=(0:6*\x)A) or more likely ([shift=(A)]6*\x,0) (the shift=(A) part can also be added to the path then).

comment Scale chevron chart with tikz and insert line break for text
Can you give as a full MWE we can work on? A TikZ picture that is wider than a \linewidth will not break automatically (for TeX it is just one box). TikZ won't break a chain neither. How would you like the diagram to look? Even without the shape=signal it is propably too wide. Maybe take a look at the smartdiagram package.

comment How to draw a diagram with the given semantic?
Eh, just because your diagram isn't a commutative diagram doesn't mean you can't use a cd package for it. This seems easily doable. However, it would be helpful if you could provide a MWE or at least packages who contain the math-macros you used in your explanations.

Looks like a simple array with a few empty cells between to me?

comment forest “every leaf node” and “every tree node” like syntax
Yes, there is if={n_children==0}{<no children>}{<children>} or even if n children={0}{<no children>}{<children>}.

comment forest “every leaf node” and “every tree node” like syntax
every leaf node = node with no children? every tree node = node with children?

comment How to force nodes to have the same size in tikz matrices
I'm puzzled, too, but you can do column 1/.style={nodes={Minimum Width=col1}} and so on.

comment Not able to align nodes properly
column sep={2cm,between origins}? Isn't ($(-3, \y) + (-2, \y)$) just (-5, 2*\y)? Can you complete your example to a full MWE and show what you want to achieve? I’d use only matrix for this, though.

comment A diagram for an argument to the Pythagorean Theorem
“You can nest calc syntax!” Indeed! ($(A)!0.5!(B)!0.8cm!90:(B)$) works, too.
