comment Which Latex environments are supported in Markdown and pandoc?
You may not be able to easily define your own pandoc tags, but you can certainly include raw TeX/LaTeX code into your Markdown file, and it will be passed verbatim into the TeX output file. Combine that with your own template, and you can make more or less whatever you want (though the more complex it gets, the less advantage Pandoc will provide over just writing in LaTeX).

comment Is there a simple way to get started, and learn as I go? I can't afford up-front time investment
"Each time, after about a week of work, I would end up with a saved document that had one line on it that didn't look like what I wanted." -- when my PhD advisor gave up on Word for his students' thesis/dissertation writing, he had them all write up increasingly-complex papers for class assignments. By the end of the class, they were relatively comfortable with LaTeX, at least enough to use the university's thesis template correctly. Given that, I'd focus on content creation before formatting details. Besides, much of what you might want to replicate from Word may be bad typography anyway.

comment Drawing a tree diagram
Is there a meaningful difference between amsart and other document classes for this case? Probably not. Same with your footnote symbols and other packages. The point is: try one of the examples linked above. See how close you can get it to your desired final result, and then ask about finishing up what's missing. What you've provided comes incredibly close to a "draw this for me" question, which may get answered, may not, or may draw a fair amount of criticism.

Also, see TeXample: Trees for similar diagrams. If you modify the one most similar to fill in your information as much as possible, you'll end up with a much simpler (and more likely to be answered) question.

Much of your code does not seem to be relevant to the question you're asking here. Please limit the example to only the code required for your issue to appear. You can have a look at this guide for how to prune your code for this purpose.

comment Image not recognized as PNG
For the recently added question, browsers download content in their original format. You would use an image editor (Paint, IrfanView, Paint.Net, etc.) to change its format.

IrfanView will open the image and warn you if the extension doesn't match the file content, then offer to change the extension accordingly.

Alternatively, you can omit the \diag command entirely and use the diagbox package.

comment How to do horizontal letterpaper in two halves with imposition?
Yes. That's why there's a booklet printing option in Adobe Reader. It's not the default. If you make a 4-page PDF, then print it with that booklet printing option, does it not put pages 1 and 4 on one side of the sheet, and pages 2 and 3 together on the other side?

comment How to do horizontal letterpaper in two halves with imposition?
Unless I misunderstand, I just took an 8.5x11 PDF, ran it through Reader's booklet printing option on a duplexing printer, and had a correctly numbered booklet with each page taking up 8.5x5.5 of each side of each sheet. Make a normal 4-page PDF and verify?

Searching the site for imposition, it looks like the common options include using external tools to arrange the pages, including Adobe Reader.
