Enable reftex, it contains features to search and replace (I think it is based on David's answer). Always pair auctex with reftex. Makes your life easier

comment How can I fix a “*.sty not found” error in Lyx, when it works in pdflatex?
Locate only works if you manually updated the system file database (nothing to do with latex, update using sudo updatedb). For latex files use kpsewhich file.sty

Additionally, have you tried comparing log files from when compiling with LyX and from compiling from pdflatex? Just to verify it is looking for files in the same places.

AFAIK texlive does not install anything in /etc or /var/lib, so why is texhash updating in there? Have you been messing with the setup?

What kind of latex have you installed? I've never seen texhash going into so many strange texmf folders.

comment How to use function \newcommand to turn off math mode?
It is NOT a good idea to make these "shortcuts" as has been discussed many times on this site.

Unrelated, but you should move the label down after the caption. It is the caption the numbers the figure, not the figure env

comment Why is the space underneath my theorems not showing up?
Had a closer look, it is definitely a bug, in how styles are defined. If you use \mdfsetup instead of defining a style, then it works. This is clearly a but. I'll email the author.

Might be an idea to email the author, he is usually quite helpful. I think he's also usually on this site.

I think this is a standing bug/feature in mdframed, it is really hard to get it to have an even space above an below. Changing to much larger values, the skipabove does work, but below, does not

Then the OP is doing it all wrong, \cftpartname should not really contain font settings, use \cftpartfont

comment Modify appearance of Part Title in the table of contents
What exactly does not work? When I compile the example, Part I and Part II in the toc are green, as are the two part title pages.

comment PDF Figure doesn't show the Curve
Then how are we suppose to help? And we are not taling about the entire article. Make a copy, remove anything irrelevant, and post that. I.e. make the shortest document possible that still compiles and show this error. I would guess that you do not even need any text in that document. In general preparing these minimal examples is a good learning tool for debugging LaTeX problems.
