comment How to automatically handle “a” and “an” in front of acronyms with the glossaries package?
Since the text you want to change has nothing to do with the acronym itself, but the word before it, wouldn't you need some sort of \indef macro whose form depends on the following \ac macro?

comment How to have \psframe working with LuaLatex?
The simple answer is that you can't use PSTricks with LuaTeX. There are some ways around this; see the linked duplicate for details.

@daleif Yes, it's part of TeXLive and therefore part of MacTeX. The issue doesn't have anything to do with this script.

The problem is that in your Path settings (the first box in your settings image) you have put /Library/TeX/texbin/pdftex but this is incorrect. It should be simply /Library/TeX/texbin

@daleif It's part of the TeXLive distribution. It does latex+dvips+ps2pdf in one shot.

comment Using 2 citation call-out formats within the same article
See What is the relationship between natbib, apacite package, and apa document class? for a detailed explanation with respect to the APA style.

comment Using 2 citation call-out formats within the same article
This is a standard pattern, and natbib provides two citation commands for it: \citet which yields Name (xxxx) and \citep which yields (Name, xxxx). biblatex has similar facilities with its \textcite and \parencite.

@mico Ok. My machines typically have multiple users, so I prefer not to have per user profiles for stuff that should be available to all users. I removed the old code that was in /etc/profile and replaced it with eval $(/usr/libexec/path_helper -s) within the whoami != "root" conditional.

@mico Did you ever solve this problem? I just updated to El Capitan and had the same problem which turned out to be an old path in /etc/profile.

comment I want a double space between my paragraphs
@PhilosophicalPhysics 1.5em is (roughly) 1.5 times the width of an 'm' in the current font, so 15pt in a 10pt font. (The notion of a "double space" isn't very clear with any proportional spaced font.) It's what the standard paragraph indent is set to in the standard classes. See Which measurement units should one use in LaTeX? and What are the various units (ex, em, in, pt, bp, dd, pc) expressed in mm? for more details. \kant[1-2] just produces the first 2 paragraphs of the kantlipsum dummy text.

comment Software which compiles scripts automatically
BaKoMa TeX is not free but is otherwise good, from what I understand. I don't know how up-to-date it is with respect to packages. LyX is not directly LaTeX but uses LaTeX behind the scenes and can export LaTeX documents. Most of us here don't use either of them, but instead just compile manually when we need to. See Real Time LaTeX?. Your question is a duplicate of this.
