comment Custom bibliography and footcite styles
This looks very close to chicago-notes, which is part of biblatex-chicago except for the position of the year in the bibliography (which is odd: it's the usual position in author/year styles, but not in notes styles). I'd strongly suggest you have a look at that.

comment Proper use of in:, \intitlepunct for @inbook entries in biblatex
@moewe That's right ... nearly -- because technically I think \printunit doesn't actually print the unit: it sits it in the buffer but makes it persist there regardless of subsequent \newunit or \setunits. But the actual printing only happens when the buffer clears. A second \printunit will still clobber it. But that's irrelevant in this case, and not a reason to prefer my solution!

comment Proper use of in:, \intitlepunct for @inbook entries in biblatex
For my own part I think the solutions are equally good/bad. In fact, I originally used moewe's but preferred \nopunct because I think it more accurately expresses the intention: his effectively means "punctuate this with intitlepunct (even if it's not punctuation)", whereas mine means "use a space, and no following punctuation". In this case, however, it comes to the same thing, I think.

comment EViews Output and Tables
You might have a look at the datatool (ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/datatool) and csvsimple (ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/csvsimple) packages, especially (given your needs) the latter.

It's quite extensively documented in the manual (around 4.7) but it is highly condensed.

comment How to manage large sidenotes in tufte-handout class?
+1 But really this is a document design problem and @aradnix should reconsider the design, or the text, or both: tufte assumes reasonably brief sidenotes: there is a fixed amount of space for them, and all the advantages of the class for the reader are lost in this case. If there must be a worm of text crawling over a mountain of notes, better to use footnotes, surely.

comment How can I delineate and later fill a placeholder for arbitrary text?
I don't know about the second problem. Could the first be caused by the table of contents in some way? Can you generate a MWE which exhibits the problem?

comment Referencing Style
Brian -- I've edited your addition of a .bib file so that it gets written automatically via a filecontents environment. It's a convenient trick when producing MWEs for bibliography related matters.

comment Customizing the biblatex style authoryear
I think it will cause more confusion to leave it this way, actually! A MWE is a "minimal working example" -- see here: meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…. Basically it's very helpful to have a "sample" document which people can play with.

@SimonBeck If you have other questions, it's better to post a fresh question, preferably with a MWE -- you can adapt my answer, I expect, to provide one.

@moewe In this case I think the unstarred version is what's needed, but I'll make an edit.
