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.

Can't confirm this happens. (Final version of TeXLive2012: pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012), rotating.sty 2009/03/28 v2.16a, babel.sty 2008/07/08 v3.8m)

comment How to use a counter inside \titleformat in LaTeX?
Tangentially, you might also be looking for what is referred to as theorems in LaTeX: bodys with a numbered heading.

comment Is there a \renewtheorem equivalent of \renewcommand, using amsthm and not ntheorem?
Errrr... I was about to give a possible helpful answer along the lines of \let\thmTemp\relax\newtheorem*..., but I object to using the \new... and \renew... family as in-document (as opposed to preamble) commands, so I won't.

comment Converting Powerpoint master slide to beamer
With a bit of elbow grease, you may be able to fake it for sufficiently simple purposes: use a whole-page image of their page as the background (really, that's much easier than re-doing all the gradients and spacing), and then adjust fonts and position for the content. I don't know if that's worth the effort...

comment Is there a better formatting option for an alternated enumerated/itemized list?
I'd probably look in the direction of the theorem/ntheorem/amsthm packages to define an automatically-numbered question environment.

comment TeXLive - no latex binary after installation
Maybe the format wasn't generated properly on installing. Does tlmgr generate fmtutil --rebuild-sys help? Does calling tex -fmt pdflatex work, i.e. produce what you would expect pdflatex to produce?
