I am a LaTeX user for several years now but I never took it much further than user level. Sometimes I wish I'd be a better coder but I am able to solve most of my problems with existing packages.

Currently I am in the last year of my PhD in Chemical Engineering in Manchester, England which means that I won't be able to dedicate much time to tex.stackexchange in the next couple of month. However, I am going through phases of substantial procrastination and if I see a question I can answer, I'll try to give a good answer.

Once finished with my PhD, I'd like to return to my home sweet home in Germany.

comment Correct pronunciation of graphicx?
I think you should say graphics as you normally do but then make a wild gesture with your hand, showing that you are "street" and for that reason will write it with a X

comment Sharelatex 'swallows' 80 pages of my work when compiling pdf
This misses an actual package \usepackage[margin=10pt, font=small, labelfont=bf, labelsep=endash] it probably is {caption}. amsmath is loaded multiple times... Maybe do a cleanup of your preamble first?

comment Modifying .bst file --
If you are at very beginning of your work, I would recommend you to familiarize with the biblatex package. Other than bst files it uses latex commands to define the style of citations and the bibliography. The code is much more easy to understand and highly customizable. try \usepackage[style=numeric]{biblatex}, \addbibresource{bibfile.bib} and in the text \printbibliography instead of \bibliography and bibliographystyle. The basic numeric style should be very close to what you want already

comment Included PDF line width
Not that I'm aware of. LaTex does no image manipulation it just includes a given image. Line width needs to reduce somehow when scaling down, otherwise your rectangle will appear as a filled rectangle on small scale if the line width do not scale. I frequently use inkscape and usually do what @DavidCarlisle recommends. I make a figure roughly to the size (A4 portrait, margins, etc.) so it only needs to scale 10-15% max

comment Is it possible to have \listoffigures and \begin{bibliography} on the same page?
Can you please edit your post and include a complete compilable code. Most important is the document class as some modify the default behaviour of standard classes. So for now, I can only answer: Yes, it is possible to do that.

comment Latex, Tabular TeX
I assume you mean column width. You can use the p{length} column type, where length can be any tex-length, e.g. p{2cm}. So \begin{tabular}{p{3cm}p{3cm}} would give two columns wit equal 3cm width

You can search the documentation for \glsgenentryfmt it allows you to define custom styles. There is also an example document included in the package. In the end it comes down to how many times you need this special case and if it is worth the trouble....
