comment Placing nodes on a visible grid in Tikz
Note also that you should load the positioning library and use right=of rather than right of=. See Difference between "right of=" and "right=of" in PGF/TikZ

comment Lyx doesn't compile a kth root
Welcome to TeX.SX! The command to create a square root sign is \sqrt, not \root. And a general comment: example code for questions should always be as short as possible. That means you should make a copy of your document, and remove everything that doesn't influence whether the error occurs or not. In some cases you may need to go through some trial and error, but in this case you could probably have removed everything but a single equation containing the command. It's also helpful to report the entire error message that you get.

comment using tikz package to draw a flow chart not working
As @Ignasi hinted at, you could generate PDFs of each tikzpicture with \documentclass[tikz]{standalone}\usetikzlibrary{...}\begin{document}\begin{tikz‌​picture}...\end{tikzpicture}\end{document} and add them to your thesis with \includegraphics.

comment Exporting .png or .jpg files directly from LaTeX code. Possible?
There are a few similar questions, e.g From inside a LaTeX article, I want to render several parts of the code into a separate png (a "render pass")/, How to save a figure produced by tikz save/export as JPG/PNG file, TeX figure to .png, tikz external use png as default instead of pdf. Do any of those help?

comment Questions From a LaTeX Beginner
@Sigur ProTeXt is (as I understand it) more or less just MikTeX + TeXStudio + maybe some other stuff. It is more common to call MikTeX a distribution, it contains all the necessary style files, class files, font files, binaries etc. to use (La)TeX.

comment minipage layout not correct
Looks like Side-by-side source and output when documenting a style file might be of interest.
