comment Which packages should I recommend to postgraduates in different academic disciplines?
But the package doesn't encourage that at all. It's simply useful to keep one's code cleaner. Many \footnote commands may disrupt reading LaTeX code.

For humanities, sepfootnotes for those who indulge in numerous or lengthy footnotes or endnotes.

comment qtree spacing and alignment
It is possible but give it a go first for your education. Run texdoc forest and take a quick look at page 5. Example number 3 is quite similar to yours.

comment How to check if a macro value is empty or will not create text with plain TeX conditionals?
This is really clever. So, \if compares the first \relax with either \detokenize{#1} or the second \relax depending on what #1 turns out to be.

comment How to check if a macro value is empty or will not create text with plain TeX conditionals?
I think I see it. So, what is being compared here is not \relax and \detokenize{#1} but, rather, \relax and \detokenize{#1}\relax, right?

Why do we need the second \relax in \if\relax\detokenize{#1}\relax? Could it be just a % instead, or does it have another role to play?

comment How to define a wrapper to a command that takes an optional argument?
Nope. This is not a wrapper. Suppose you want to do something else with either or both #1 and #2 in addition to passing them forward to \chapter. A wrapper would be able to do it, but your clone would not.
