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.

comment Why does \everypar not work?
\everypar is not safe to use in LaTeX. Among the things using it are \@@startsection, an internal base for all sectioning commands, \item, amsmath environments, ...

comment Usage of LaTeX macro \space (compared with \␣)
I think "the combination \␣ is harder to make out on the screen" is a pro here (says the guy who let you replace \cite{....} with []).

comment How to create a group of minipages that can be spanned across columns but can't be broken in two pages?
I've tried \goodbreak between your question blocks, which, regardless of setting of \widowpenalty and \clubpenalty, which might be relevant here, yielded each question block spread over an entire column, which is suboptimal.

comment How to set LaTeX so that PDF reader opens Beamer presentation without scrolling?
Is is scrolling from page to page or is the aspect ratio of your window just such that it can't all fit on there? pdfview=Fit might be a good \hypersetup option to try.

comment How can I cite a chapter in the same article or book
If I recall, hyperref's code actually looks at the counter that is used, and not at fig: prefixes and the like. It's still a good idea to use those, though, since some editors offer "insert reference" commands that will guess from context whether you want to reference a figure and only offer you fig: labels.

comment How to include/import only specific sections when using a multiple file structure
Note that \include needs to add pagebreaks around the included part, so using it on something lower than a \chapter might give unexpected results.

comment Times they are changing (font differences Mac/LaTeX)
Hard to tell for me without a grid superimposed on the bottom picture, but the smallcaps letters seem to be slightly larger. If it's a one-off job, manually kern, maybe make the lowercase letters 0.5pt smaller, things like that.
