comment Multiple references and bibtex files
With biblatex+biber you can e.g. use refsection to split your references.

comment pst-barcode with MikTeX portable
How do you call xelatex when the parh is not set? Do you use the command line from miktex portable?

You are not loading the hypenation patterns. \usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

comment Switching to lualatex: How to translate font setups?
With pdflatex Grüße will hyphenate if you use T1-fencoding, with lualatex not. That's a side effect of the font setup, (O)T1-encoded fonts (or other standard encodings) and the utf8-orientated patterns of lualatex clash. In beamer slides this probably won't matter, but one should know that this side effect exists.

comment Switching to lualatex: How to translate font setups?
This isn't perfect either: The hyphenation patterns don't expect the ß at this position and so "Grüße" will no hyphenate in a german document. Using standard font packages is possible as a workaround but should not be recommended.

No he will not be fine if he uses standard pdflatex packages with lualatex. Add Grüße to your example and you will see why.

comment Switching to lualatex: How to translate font setups?
You are confusing fontenc and fontspec in various places of your question. There are quite a number of font packages which also setup fonts for lualatex, e.g. libertine and other packages maintained by Bob Tennent. But as there exists so many fonts that you can't expect a package for everyone -- and when you get used to it you will see that calling the fonts with the fontspec commands is not so difficult.

comment How to cite a number of a journal's volume?
I didn't mean it as a "trick" only as a suggestion. I don't know what the number refers too. (I get quite a number of monthly journals.)

comment Remove period added in references when note is present
Crosspost texwelt.de/wissen/fragen/12725/… and golatex.de/…. Beside this your tag is fautly, this is not a biblatex question.

comment How can I get a count of the optional arguments with xparse?
How can the number be arbitrary in the definition? Your example shows 10 arguments, so this is the maximum.

comment How can I get a count of the optional arguments with xparse?
Simply check from the end if the optional argument has no value. But are you sure that a command with so many arguments is senseful? I avoid more then two arguments.

comment why grffile package is not working when filename of eps contains space?
Filenames shouldn't contain spaces so that you don't have to spent an hour to find workarounds. Spaces are difficult has one has to protect the spaces so that they are not misinterpreted as end of names, and they get more difficult when the file name is passed to some external converter like epstopdf.

comment Choosing version of MikTex to use in TexMaker?
You can keep 2.8 without problems if you have the space. At first check if miktex 2.9 is first in the PATH environment variable. (use e.g. set in a command line to show you the current settings.) Then check the settings in texmaker -- the best is if they don't use any hard coded path so that the environment variable is used.

comment XeLaTeX renders broken text after upgrade to Ubuntu Vivid
Do you really have texlive 2015? Then your version of fontspec looks too old. Mine has a date of 2015/03/14 v2.4c. Is user/share the normal location for texlive fonts in ubuntu?

comment XeLaTeX renders broken text after upgrade to Ubuntu Vivid
This could indicate that there are two versions of a font in your system. Add \XeTeXtracingfonts= 1 to your document. Then compile on the terminal in two steps; xelatex --no-pdf file and xdvipdfmx -vv file.xdv and compare the pathes in the .log-file with the pathes in the output of xdvipdfmx.

comment Can biblatex parse a name string directly instead of loading from a file?
You could write the names to some tempory bib-file, call biber to process them as always and then use them.

comment TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000] error with glossaries
Remove the hanging package. Why do you load it? (Or as least disable the hanging quotes with \usepackage[notquote]{hanging}),
