comment Is there a script that reads a TeX file and replaces every instance of a \newcommand?
By the way, if you think from this that regex is for loonies, you're probably right.

comment Page layout: problems setting margins and placing footer
I can't see a problem on my install; the horizontal line at the top of the textblock showframe is exactly 25mm from the top of the page. Could you add a screenshot?

comment memoir: pagestyle for index start on second page of index
No, it's working as designed - the first page of every chapter uses the pagestyle alias named 'chapter', and you can force uniformity by aliasing it to whatever suits your case. It may help to take a look at sections 7.2 and 7.3 of the memoir manual?

comment Generating lists and tables of items from commands in the document
I'd suggest looking at Nicola Talbot's datatool package, which I think will help you with almost all the heavy lifting required to do this.
