comment Modular LaTeX document preambles and class files
Related: Classes and packages – what's the difference? -- from that, I'd say anything that's not specific to a particular type of document (thesis, tech report, etc.) should be in a package. For me, \include is only for chapters. If I have my packages in version control, I can check them out into my TEXMFHOME folder on any platform (e.g., C:/users/me/texmf on Windows, /home/me/texmf on Linux). No idea what to tell you about xelatex and tex4ht.

comment Why am I unable to use BibLaTeX?
Not sure, and I won't be awake much longer today. You can try running biber from a terminal prompt and looking for error messages, but at least your main document is correct as long as I have a working bib file and associated cite commands.

comment Why am I unable to use BibLaTeX?
I see an error message of "biber can't find one or more source files". I know your document with a working .bib file (one I had, since you didn't include one) worked correctly for me.

comment Why am I unable to use BibLaTeX?
The first document works, assuming you use biber instead of bibtex. Depending on your editor (assuming TeXshop), you may need to do this from the command line instead of a menu. Alternatively, if you have pdflatexmk in your menu, it will automatically run biber as needed.

comment usebackgroundtemplate after section
For the first question, in the beamer manual, section 8.1: "plain causes the headlines, footlines, and sidebars to be suppressed". Titles and subtitles are not in those suppressed areas.

comment Can or will pdf with MinionPro produced by ps2pdf allow to search for words with ligatures, such as “final”?
Related, may help: What are good ways to make pdflatex output copy-and-pasteable? -- since I don't have MinionPro, I can't make a useful test.

comment Can or will pdf with MinionPro produced by ps2pdf allow to search for words with ligatures, such as “final”?
Section 7 of the Minion Pro package manual indicates you might fix this with \input glyphtounicode \pdfgentounicode=1. Does that work?
