comment Can one “manually override” BibTeX's choice of citation keys by adding a field to the entry?
I don't see how this is possible; a bibtex produced .bbl file contains nothing at all about (shorthand) cite labels; see e.g. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/154215/… ... if you meant changes in the .bst, that is something else altogether.

comment Latex \tracing commands list?
I just learned there is also \tracefloats; it's .sty file has to be manually generated, however, as described in How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? #39020

comment Problems in expansion of a setcounter macro (Use of \csname doesn't match its definition)?
Thanks @ChristianHupfer - that line is supposed to be \protected@edef\theparent#1{\the#1}, but it was giving me problems like that, so I tried to \expandafter-it; and I thought it was solved, seeing the error show on \setcounter line... will need to take a look again. Cheers!

comment Split the reference counter for any numbered item (like with subequations)
Thanks for that @egreg - I tried making a generic "subanything" macro and posted it below; but I cannot get rid of a csname definition error, so it looks like I'll be using your solution. Cheers!

comment Artifical bold of a font (as vector) by a thicker stroke in Latex?
Thanks for the comment, @Manuel - indeed, the looking "worse in a pdf viewer" part is what makes me see the bitmap approach as problematic; though, as I haven't yet seen an example of how this is done in code with the "bitmap" approach either, I'd welcome an answer or a link for that, too... cheers!
