comment Suggestion of LaTeX Complete Package?
There are good reasons not to install the TeX via the Linux package manager. See Adding a CTAN package to a MacPorts-maintained TeX installation for some reasons why (the specific answer deals with Mac, but is applicable to all Linux systems too) and How to install "vanilla" TeXLive on Debian or Ubuntu? for how to install TeX Live without using the prepackaged versions.

comment Apacite: suppress initials intext? (Sublime 2 on mac)
This should definitely work. How did you install TeX on your machine? Are you using MacTeX? (I hope you haven't installed via MacPorts or equivalent.) What does which pdftex give you?

comment Apacite: suppress initials intext? (Sublime 2 on mac)
In the linked question, the location of the file is relative to a 2010 TeX Live distribution. A foolproof way to find the file on your current system is to type kpsewhich apacite.bst in a terminal window. This will return the full path for the file. You can then open that file and save it under a new name in the folder ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bst, or put it in the same folder as your TeX document.

comment Equation numbers are shown in reverse parentheses
@Pedram This is not a minimal example. Cut out all the code that isn't needed and make a complete document compilable that shows the problem. Also, since you are writing in Persian you might want to use the xepersian package instead.

comment Equation numbers are shown in reverse parentheses
Without a minimal example, it's hard to tell, but I suspect a duplicate of bidi cause reverse parentheses in equations numbers (Obviously you may need to choose the appropriate Script for your particular language.)

comment Custom separator for CSV import via csvsimple
This doesn't really answer the question, which deals with the csvsimple package, not datatool. Since both are fine packages, it's not clear that suggesting someone switch is really appropriate.

comment Custom separator for CSV import via csvsimple
Hi, and welcome to TeX.sx. Can you please turn this into a complete compilable document that produces the error. When I construct such an example, it works.

comment Set more than one font feature in gb4e
@Stefano Sans serif IPA fonts are quite rare; SIL Sophia was one, but it doesn't seem to be supported by SIL anymore. I think the IPA was designed with a serifed font in mind, and adaptations to sans serif faces are always weak.
