comment BibTeX style which shows annotation fields and employs numeric-style citation call-outs
Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you.

comment How can I type this format of equation in latex?
Your question leaves all the effort to our community, even typing the essentials of a TeX document such as \documentclass{}...\begin{document} etc. As it is, most of our users will be very reluctant to touch your question, and you are left to the mercy of our procrastination team who are very few in number and very picky about selecting questions. You can improve your question by adding a minimal working example (MWE) that more users can copy/paste onto their systems to work on. If no hero takes the challenge we might have to close your question.

@baptiste: Then I suggest to investigate LuaTeX with it's built-in MetaPost; you could draw your letters on demand.

comment Producing “glossy” documents
I believe context may be the better choice here: AFAIK it's better tailored at designers. See Why should I be interested in ConTeXt?

If you want to avoid confusion, you should use the standard format YYYY-MM-DD; see the answer by Uwe.

comment Compile extremely large file into pdf
@freshquiz: 70mwords is not the hard limit. But IIRC you can not raise main_memory infinitely; you have to also increase extra_mem_top and extra_mem_bot. But first try luatex.
