comment tex file compilable on windows but not on OSX
Also, if you take a hello world document from Windows and bring it to the Mac, does it compile? What's the simplest document you can edit down to that causes an error, and what's the error?

comment Why don't book, report and article provide the same commands?
Don't get me wrong, I love memoir, but using it correctly is a new learning curve from the regular document classes and commonly-used packages.

comment Why don't book, report and article provide the same commands?
"In an article one would probably not speak of chapters or include back matters." -- I expect that's largely the reason for the differences. If a division or other structuring element is irrelevant to a particular class, it's just not present. Alternatively, one could bite the bullet and move to the memoir class (from section 6.2): "When the article option is in effect, however, things are slightly different. New chapters do not necessarily start on a new page. The \mainmatter command just turns on sectional numbering ..."

comment How to format the online source citations and the author biography in ieeetran inside “thebibliography” tag?
As far as the TeX sources go, from the author's website: "People sometimes ask for this because they think that the HOWTO code will provide some good examples of usage. Trust me, it won't. The reason is that a lot of special code must be used to display LaTeX code within a LaTeX document. For this and other reasons, I don't release the HOWTO source code."

comment .tex write permission error - how do I fix this?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the error occurs in programs other than TeXmaker.

Mandatory argument, position 1. It's whatever is between the first set of braces as in \eng{some text}

comment .tex write permission error - how do I fix this?
So on your same regular user account, try to copy a file into that directory with some other tool (cp, Nautilus, whatever). It probably fails, too. if so, the error is almost certainly not limited to TeXmaker, and indicates some unknown change in the operating system.

Then most likely, you can't save any files to this directory with any editor or other command, not just with TeXmaker. Or else things aren't quite what you describe (for whatever reason).

comment .tex write permission error - how do I fix this?
This is probably not a TeX problem. Most likely, you're a regular user trying to save a file into /usr/local or some other protected system area. Try saving to somewhere inside your home directory.

comment Switching between Devanagari script and italicized Roman script
I assume you've seen this answer to Getting Started to Xetex for Devangari?. If your document is largely Devangari with only some English or other language, you can make a short macro like \eng to switch to the Roman font.

comment “overfull hbox (62.122123 too wide)” message in a long equation
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. If I wrap your question in a simple \documentclass{article}\begin{document} and \end{document}, no errors occur. So the root cause is elsewhere.

comment Best way to compile a LaTeX project
latexmk will handle points 1 and 2 natively. If you use pdflatex on any modern TeX installation, point 3 is handled automatically (pdflatex will read PDF and JPG natively, and the epstopdf package is normally automatically loaded and handles EPS). Points 4 and 5 could be handled by the listings package, but that won't run the scripts or programs on its own. So you could use a makefile to update output from point 5, and let latexmk and your document handle points 1-4.

comment How can I find the File name after compile the document?
Are umbcposter.cls and other associated files all in the same folder as your own .tex file? If not, that's the cause of your error.

comment How can I find the File name after compile the document?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. In particular, we have no idea where you got the sample poster or anything else. Googling latex "enter file name" indicates you may not have the files in a single folder. But that's a wild guess given the information provided.
