comment Repeating enumerated list items and their original number
If you're describing linguistics style example numbering, I don't think repeating examples in this way is actually very good form; it's better to repeat the example with a new number. But the main example numbering packages can deal with these cases if you insist.

comment Mimic BibTeX “apalike” with BibLaTeX - (biblatex-apa broken?)
I can replicate this error too, so something is up with the latest versions of biblatex and biblatex-apa.

comment Superflous leading dot in biblatex/numeric and beamer
To anyone else with this issue: it has now been fixed in Beamer thanks to Audrey's code, so if you still encounter it, you should update your packages.

comment How can I hide the chapter headings number on LaTeX and change the spacing?
If you're trying to match university requirements and you've just started using LaTeX, I would strongly recommend using the memoir class as a base. It is extremely well documented, and gives you fine control over almost everything you would need to satisfy the requirements. Otherwise you may find yourself with a series of hacked together code that you don't understand.

texdoc pifont brings up the PDF documentation for psnfss2e, section 7 of which documents pifont. In general, when you search for package documentation you should not use .sty or .cls etc. in the search.

Can you give some examples of ones that don't work? I've rarely encountered problems with most packages.

comment Mimic BibTeX “apalike” with BibLaTeX - (biblatex-apa broken?)
Since you've asked for a biblatex solution, could you post the biblatex-apa version of your document that didn't work? Most of what you want can probably be done by tweaking a biblatex-apa version.

comment What's the best way to arrange LaTeX documents?
This answer shows something similar. There I used a CSV file to keep all the verses and translations and the datatool package to display and manipulate them. It was aimed at a word-by-word gloss style, but the basic idea could easily adapted to your purpose.

Everything you want to do can be done with the titlesec package. Can you show us what you've tried (with a small working example document.)

Can you show us a document with 1 verse, its meanings and commentaries?

comment Meaning of fontspec related error
Probably the other system is more up-to-date than yours. This is the same problem that caused me to be unable to compile the example in your previous question: Fontspec transparency problem. Try adding \usepackage{calc} to your preamble.
