comment How to keep track of packages one has already used?
For the specific example you pose, about having different header styles in different parts of the documents, take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/q/37574/3731 for instructions on how to accomplish that with fancyhdr. For other packages that deal with headers, tex.stackexchange.com/q/1247/3731 offers a few suggestions. Regarding your additional question, tex.stackexchange.com/a/18550/3731 also gives a good suggestion for the general case. If you have something specific in mind, you should post a new question with a MWE. It helps others find a lot easier.

comment When is it appropriate to use \paragraph?
Thank you for the Bringhurst reference. Legal documents were the only ones that came to mind when I asked this question, but I did not want to bias the answers. Now I know!

comment Methods to edit column order in an existing LaTeX table?
I use space and tab when importing; most importantly, I look for the visual cue in the Excel import-window that tells you how the data will be imported, and choose the delimiters accordingly.

@DavidCarlisle, in emacs, if the input is not as nicely aligned as in the MWE, align and align-current work well and can take care of that.

Alternatively, you can use Emac's Org mode to convert the data to a table with (org-table-create-or-convert-from-region) and move the columns around with M-<left> and M-<right>. Then you can either export it in LaTeX format or save it as a text file.

comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
@DavidCarlisle, that alone is enough to convince me to make longtable my package of choice. Could you phrase it as an answer to the original question so I may mark this as answered?

comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
@HarishKumar, i think you mean this one: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/12672/…. I must have missed it the first time because I was focusing only on comparing longtable and supertabular. It recommends xtab over supertabular, but also states that longtable is "very popular".

comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
@ArTourter, I meant that it is under-represented in the questions in this site, more so than supertabular. Either it's so good that it causes no problems or not a lot of people use it. Without polling, there's no way to tell.

@HarishKumar, I didn't even know that was an option! It also seems to get less love than supertabular here.

comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
I don't mind that much, as long as they stay the same width in that page. The document I'm working on is already pre-specified to be as ugly as possible, so I don't think those reading it will mind either.
