comment How to expand control sequence in argument of a macro
@IgorLiferenko An argument is either delimited or undelimited. You can't have both for the same parameter.

comment Excessive spacing between lines in definition
\smash[b] in the top line although not in this case, where the space above the definition text compensates. It would be necessary if the first summation is in the second line. The “control space” before \in is wrong and \ldots should be \dots. You could first of all suggest the solution without \limits.

comment Align equations in enumerate environment
@GustavoMezzetti There's no impact on memory usage, just on execution time, possibly a fraction of a nanosecond now, but not much more in the olden days. ;-)

comment Odd (?) spacing for mapping notation
As I said, the shapes of symbols can create optical illusions or real clashes; for instance, one should type \sqrt{\,\log 3} because of the tall letter (clash) or x^2\!/2 to compensate for the hole created by the relative shapes (optical). Such details make a difference when good typography is concerned.

comment Odd (?) spacing for mapping notation
TeX adds \scriptspace after a sub/superscript, the default is 0.5pt (a bit less than 0.2mm). There is also the optical “hole” created by the shape of +, which is probably responsible for the seeming big space. If you really feel it's too wide, you can try with \!\to. But the third example has too big backspacing. The second one is just wrong, in my opinion.

comment Align equations in enumerate environment
@GustavoMezzetti It's the same, just one expansion step less. When possible, I prefer higher level macros.

comment Install a font local to one particular document
Converting TTF or OT fonts for pdflatex needs several steps and several files: you need TFM and VF files, ENC files and MAP files. Your aim is reachable in principle; but it requires expertise and time.

Don't be lazy with this: \\ for “leaving a blank line” is one of the worst errors.
