comment Automated management of package options and loading order
Don't forget the optional version specification in \usepackage[opts]{pkg}[yyyy/mm/dd]. (I'm not sure I'm a friend of a formulation that scans your preamble, I'd prefer something vaguely like \usepackages{[ngerman]babel,[T1]fontenc[2013/12/12],listings} in whatever varation is convenient to parse.

comment Error when including \usepackage{hyperref}
Unrelated to your problems: you probably want to use \centering in tables and figures instead of \being{center} and \end{center}. (Also I personally like my \label directly after the \caption, but your preferences may vary. As long as it's after the caption.)

comment Error when including \usepackage{hyperref}
Where do you get your \subtitle command from? Not that I think that's the problem, it's just that your example will get stuck there for me.

comment Set the number of inverted commas automatically based on document language
csquotes may come close to what you want, by giving you commands that are, amongst other things, language-sensitive, but I don't think they'll trigger on the customary double-backtick.

comment Texlive 2013, where to place custom themes?
@Danicee: locate does not immediately update when you move files. Its database is usually updated as part of a cronjob, but this is leading us too far afield. Your custom themes should not live in the texmf-dist tree, they belong in -- guessing from the paths you give -- /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/beamer (texhash needed, systemwide) or ~/texmf/tex/latex/beamer (no texhash needed, your user only).

comment Installing TeXLive 2013 side by side on an existing TeXLive 2012
Are you running the installer as root or as an unprivileged user? Did you extend your $PATH variable for 2012 or use symlinks? (I.e., what does which pdflatex say?)

comment How to cancel the indentation of first line in paragraphs?
Very true. KOMA-Script takes a bit of configuring until it's back to the "default look", so it may or may not work as a drop-in replacement.

comment LaTeX cannot find my personal packages
@jon: Isn't TEXMFHOME, as opposed to TEXMFLOCAL and TEXMFDIST, usually configured to not use a ls-R database anyway? I seem to recall this used to be the case in TeXLive.
