comment How to draw the physical tree with balls under both the stress of strings and gravity?
You might want to check out the tkz-graph package. Documentation in French, but with lots of examples to play with. It doesn't do exactly what you want, but it is designed for graphs and not trees; anything you do with tikz-qtree will likely be very hacky, since it's not designed for that. See also Multi-rooted Tree-like Structures and Nodes with Multiple Parents in LaTeX.

comment Get biblatex-chicago working
@Yrogirg No, adding \printbibliography to the document should print a section References with the list of references. It does for me.

comment Problem with gb4e's spacing when using datatool
This has nothing to do with datatool. You can't pass a macro to \gll and have it separate the words inside the macro.

comment Magic Quadrant Chart
I assume you mean what is called in English a Magic Square? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_square I don't think there's a package out there to do that.

What exactly do you want this to look like? Do you want the vertical lines to be lined up with one another?

See e.g. How to write Bengali in LaTeX? and Inserting hindi text in between English paragraphs (effectively a duplicate)
