comment datetime causes incorrect date format even when babel is loaded first
@cfr datetime is now obsolete so there won't be any further versions. The last version had the fix that removed the erroneous "a viz". It's been replaced by datetime2 where the languages are dealt with by independently maintained modules, so the Welsh one is datetime2-welsh (currently unmaintained, but if you want to volunteer to take over, just send me a message).

comment Upper case using mhchem and glossaries
Just to expand on @clemens' comment: in the first case, \Gls is trying to do \MakeTextUppercase\ce{CO2} (so \MakeTextUppercase is trying to grab just \ce as the argument, which causes an error). In the third case, \Gls is trying to do \MakeTextUppercase\NoCaseChange{\ce{H2SO4}} (so \MakeTextUppercase is trying to grab \NoCaseChange as the argument, which causes an error). Internally \Gls is using \makefirstuc, which is described in more detail in the mfirstuc manual.

comment Acronym first use - footnote in glossary description
I realise you want to use your own style, I was just trying to point out that the problem must be related to using the footnote option specifically within the longtable environment. So really, I was just thinking out loud ;-) Your hyperref warnings may be due to a related problem of having \footnote within a longtable, but I'm not sure.

comment Acronym first use - footnote in glossary description
(Thank you for providing a mwe!) As far as I can tell, the problem seems to stem from using \footnote inside a tabular-like environment. Switching to a different style (such as list) seems to fix the problem. I'm not sure of a workaround if you really need to use a style that uses longtable.

comment Merge acronym and glossary lists and display acronyms both short and long
\setacronymstyle also sets how the name key (used in the glossary) is constructed, but it may be more appropriate to define a custom glossary style. What do you want in the text? Long only or short only? It really would help if you could provide minimal working example we can work with.

comment Merge acronym and glossary lists and display acronyms both short and long
It would help if you could provide a minimal working example (MWE) we can work with. If you're using the glossaries package, then just remove the acronym package option to have a single glossary. For a short and long version with a description try \setacronymstyle{long-short-desc}.

comment Double hyperlinks do not work
There isn't any consistent behaviour between PDF viewers with regard to nested hyperlinks, so it's generally best to avoid them. This is discussed in more detail in my answer to another question.

comment How to typeset the page number for the first occurrence of a glossary entry in the glossary list?
In addition, \glswriteentry occurs after that but before the actual link text and deals with writing information to the external files. Finally, commands like \gls have a hook that occurs after the link text (outside any hyperlink and after the first use flag is unset) and that's \glspostlinkhook.

comment How to typeset the page number for the first occurrence of a glossary entry in the glossary list?
Actually, it's "her" not "his" :-) \glslinkcheckfirsthyperhook is primarily a hook into the check to determine whether or not to set hyper=true on first use. It's used by \@gls@link@checkfirsthyper before the keys from the first optional argument of commands like \gls is used, so it's possible to override any setting through explicitly using the optional argument. There's another hook immediately after the keys are set and that's \glslinkpostsetkeys so any changes made in that command may override the user's explicit settings in the optional argument.
