comment How to underline the name of a journal in bibliography without modifying the .bib file
there is the ulem package - it changes emphasized text to underlined - it might work if your journal names are in \em rather than \it

comment How to underline the name of a journal in bibliography without modifying the .bib file
the custom-bib package provides one of the easiest ways to set up your own bibliography style file (.bst) - it certainly allows for italic journal names, but I am not sure that it provides an underlining option. AFAIK underlining cannot be broken across lines - which might cause a problem for automatically doing is for long journal names

comment Correct format of an equation
for an operator to be typeset as such (similar to log), you can declare it in the preamble. e.g. \DeclareMathOperator{\diag}{diag} - then \diag in math will typeset "diag" upright

comment htlatex/tex4ht without hyperlinks in HTML file?
@user946850 : I found an older shell script I used previously - as far as I remember, I did follow instructions I found on the web somewhere. I did check a small example this arvo - it did work (I did not go further than openoffice though); I am on ubuntu 10.04, texlive 2011 (up to date) - and can't find such .cfg either.

comment htlatex/tex4ht without hyperlinks in HTML file?
perhaps you removed hyperlink & cite commands but not all the auxiliary files? I'd try again, no hyperref, no autoref & a clean directory ...

comment how to set the left margin for all formulas in the text?
the default is to have equations centered. use can use \documentclass[fleqn]{article} to have all equations start a given distance from the left margin. this distance can be modified using e.g. \setlength{\mathindent}{2cm}

comment Why doesn't lineno number a paragraph when it is followed by an “align” equation environment without a space?
try enclosing your math environment by \begin{linenomath} and \end{linenomath} (see documentaion for lineno).

comment Including a PDF with white background as transparent
have a look at the animate package - it allows you to specify a series of pdf images which are then played. you simply include it, e.g.\documentclass{article} \usepackage{animate} \documentclass{article} \usepackage{animate} \begin{document} \centerline{ \animategraphics[controls,buttonsize=10pt, width=10cm]{4}{cv}{2}{101}} \end{document}

comment Options for decreasing this table's width?
not sure whether this works for tabularx, but for regular tabular a quick and dirty work around might be to reduce the space between columns slightly, e.g. \setlength{\tabcolsep}{5pt}
