comment Biblatex: \textcite style in footnotes
sorry, it's \listfiles of course... PS: you may want to evaluate that error message you're getting. What it's trying to tell you is that an update to your TeX system is in order. biblatex manual, p.247 says \iffirstcitekey (which is used by \textcite, as seen above) was introduced in July 2013, so if your version doesn't include it, it's about a year old. Which is a lot in the *TeX realm. It's a good idea to make it a habit to run tlmgr update --all prior to posting. It helps avoid confusion.

I'm not getting that error (or any other). You're sure your TeX system is up to date? Have a look at what \showfiles does, which I just inserted into your MWE.

comment Biblatex Printing “ibid” Lowercase at Beginning of Footnote
yup, I was thinking in that direction too, based on your previous comments. [My original hope was that if biblatex is able to automatically use Ibid vs. ibid (which it is!), it'll be able to do that in this special case as well, if provided with some help.] So, unless someone comes up with something entirely different, that's a decent workaround I guess.

comment Biblatex Printing “ibid” Lowercase at Beginning of Footnote
well, I do know that one :) My impression is that biblatex, usually, is smart enough to take care of things like that on its own, so I what I'm trying to arrive at is a solution that makes use of biblatex's usual smartness ...which of course doesn't exclude fundamental changes to what I'm doing here. My whole \footnote{\cite{}} construction might be a bad idea altogether -- if that's the case, please let me know.

comment Problem while compiling template CV with: ' fontspec error: “font-not-found”'
that said -- when using Lua/XeLaTeX, it's sufficient to just copy the .otf files from the zip file @jon mentioned to your global font directory (c:\windows\fonts or similar), same procedure as with any other font. No need to install that TeX package.
