comment How to configure/redefine the quotation environment to cite?
Thank you, I have taken the good suggestions of making a new environment instead and on better defining the quotes.

comment How to configure/redefine the quotation environment to cite?
Thank you, this answer covers about everything. I guess the double '{{' is what make the full author's name appear? Also, how can I indent paragraphs? (this is not in the original question)

comment How to configure/redefine the quotation environment to cite?
I initially used the 'environments' tag because I thought the question had a big part on how to (re)define an environment.

comment How to prevent \includegraphics from inserting whitespaces / margins (no float)?
I am more confused. I had \vskip 1cm and, apparently, it works (with no center). I used no `\` and I know exactly what you are suggesting, half the commands you are using, or if it is to put after the 1st or 2nd image.

comment How to prevent \includegraphics from inserting whitespaces / margins (no float)?
Can you explain why this is better \\[\dimexpr 1cm-\lineskip\relax] than \vskip 1cm? And, I do need the 2nd image centered (in case the real image's width is not \textwidth). \centering worked for me and I moved the center environment to after the 2nd image to affect all the text that follows the 2nd image (after another 1cm spacing). I did not thought this last text part would be relevant for the question. This is for my document's cover, it must have a centered title.. etc.

@DavidCarlisle I re-read my sentence and my English was not clear. I would expect indentfirst to be causing the indentation, since that is the first paragraph, but removing the package also causes the indentation, it makes no difference in this case.

\noindent solves the extra horizontal space due to paragraph indentation (I am using the indentfirst package, but it does not seem to make a difference). As to the vertical spacing, the center environment was indeed the problem.

comment Double line spacing
According to this: tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=linespace "setspace switches off double-spacing at places where even the most die-hard official would doubt its utility (footnotes, figure captions, and so on); it’s very difficult to do this consistently if you’re manipulating \baselinestretch yourself."

Why would a package be preferred over \linespread?

comment Is typing an accented character and compositing it the same?
I said 'input' encoding instead of 'font'. It was a mistake, I already corrected it. Thank you for the explanation, it is very clear, I understood everything except for the mention of XeLaTex and LuaLaTeX. So, inputenc turns all 'ê' and '\^e' into '\{e}' (with utf8) and this means 'yes' to my question. Then fontenc selects the correct glyph for output. :-)

'font' encoding where it read 'input' and typo correction
