comment Writing a text as LyX user together with an LaTeX user?
Short answer: No, see Can I think of LyX as a LaTeX IDE, which comes close to an exact duplicate.

comment A variant of \includeonly
@MarianoSuárez-Alvarez: I see. For this I probably would try to generate the complete PDF file and then use something like pdftk to split it into the parts that reflect the \include borders.

comment A variant of \includeonly
@MarianoSuárez-Alvarez: Now I am a bit confused about your actual goal. Is it to speed up or is it not to speed up? If it is, do you really think that "keep processing, but not outputting material" would significantly speed up?

comment Adding color to a table column as a beamer overlay
Welcome to TeX.sx!. While linking to other resources is, of course, perfectly okay, we prefer answers to be self-contained. (Links can quickly go away, you know). Hence, it would be great if you could distill the relevant parts of the thread you linked to in a a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates the approach.

comment How to disable all Vim-LaTeX mappings?
I got annoyed by that as well. Too much magic. In the end, I removed vim-latex and installed latex-box+snipMate instead. I have just been using this for a few days, but so far I am more than happy.

comment Is it possible to adjust natively the size of the PDF file during compilation with pdflatex?
In theory, you could change the compression level of pdflatex with \pdfminorversion=5 \pdfcompresslevel=9 \pdfobjcompresslevel=3 (i.e. maximum compression with PDF v1.5). However, I had tried that with my answer to How to make the PDFs produced by pdflatex smaller?, see the comments: The result basically was that this does by far not reach the compression one can achieve via the gs route.

\includegraphics[height=4cm]{chart1.pdf}\llap{\raisebox{2cm}{\includegraphics[h‌​eight=2cm]{chart2.pdf}}}. You might have to play a bit with the numbers, height of chart2 + raise = height of chart1.
