comment How can I draw these pictures in LaTeX (with Pspicture)?
The pst-labo package is extensively documented in English, French and German, and there are plenty of examples. Perhaps instead of posting pictures you could post an example document that you have tried using that package. Otherwise this question will just be closed.

comment Problem with titlesec and appendix
@mike Any time you use packages which both do similar kinds of things there can be problems. The appendix package assumes the standard titling commands, and titlesec obviously changes them, so it's not too surprising that they might have some interaction. But if your document comes out the way you want, then you should be fine and I wouldn't worry about other problems.
