comment Print origdate with biblatex-chicago - for journal articles
You should note that \citeyear (as defined above) is not designed to do what you want it to do. It is a citation command (which you haven't used in your example), and has nothing to do with the bibliography.

comment what BibTeX Style Example is this?
When was the book published? Around 1985? The chances it was produced with BibTeX are vanishingly small since BibTeX was only released in 1985, and I doubt that the Journal of Finance was an early adopter. There is also the problem that not every possible bibliographical style has a corresponding BibTeX style. (In my areas of study, e.g., there are virtually none!)

comment Undefined control sequence in first line of fontspec.sty
MacTeX is (I think) the best choice for Macs, but I have never used it. It is, however, the Mac version of TeX Live. FYI, fontspec is available on CTAN here, but you have to know to generate the .sty from the .dtx file, or install directly the .tds.zip file (which is the easiest option). I'd advise installing MacTeX. Get the 2015 version, of course!

comment Undefined control sequence in first line of fontspec.sty
You do have TL 2014: if you look in the error line you posted, you'll see: "(/usr/local/texlive/ 2014 /texmf-dist/...". You should have fontspec installed, though it depends on how you got TeX Live in the first place, which remains unclear. However, note that, for the most part, and certainly until you know what you are doing, you should rely on your official distribution and what is available on CTAN.

comment Make small caps the same size as lowercase
Easily done with fontspec. But why not use a font designed in such a way that the small caps are to your liking. 'Faking' font sizes usually looks obvious and not in a good way.

comment what BibTeX Style Example is this?
I'm fairly certain @Kurt was able to figure out what jf.bst stood for. What he asked was where the file came from. Note also that 'your code' should be in the form of a minimal example (or see here).

comment Undefined control sequence in first line of fontspec.sty
Do not copy the .sty from the first place you happen to come across it! A normal TeX Live 2014 installation will have it, and in a newer version than the random one you found. If it does not, then there are bigger problems with your installation that need to be addressed. And never install files yourself into /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf-dist. It may be that you overwrote the actual file your system already had. There are other places for installing your own files. (And many questions here about what to do with 'personal' .sty files.)

comment How do I indent a line in an enumeration environment?
Note that if you want this indentation to be a 'global' setting, what I suggested above is not the best way.

comment How do I indent a line in an enumeration environment?
As a one-off thing? At the start of your second change you second \begin{enumerate} to \begin{enumerate}\parindent15pt and change your manual break \\ to \par (or with the usual blank line).

comment How to embed abstract as an XMP metadata?
@egreg -- I added an answer, though none of the PDF viewers I use seem to be able to display the XMP metadata. I hope others will be able to verify that things actually work!

comment Exporting .org files to LaTeX - Error
As I explained, the font is likely in one of the texlive font packages (see first comment). I should have been more explicit since I think you are new to LaTeX. However, if you prefer to not install new fonts, you should export the .org file to .tex (do not go straight to PDF) and modify the exported file before compiling.

comment Exporting .org files to LaTeX - Error
Note that soul.sty is also in texlive-latex-extra. (A good simple, but not 100% perfect check is to do, e.g., apt-cache search soul.)

comment Exporting .org files to LaTeX - Error
I didn't say install wrapfig, I said it is in the Apt package texlive-latex-extra, so you should install that (sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra). Or, if download limits are an issue, get the package from CTAN and install to ~/texmf/tex/latex/wrapfig -- but then you run the risk of 'dependency hell'.

comment Exporting .org files to LaTeX - Error
Also, if 400 MB is pressing your limits, you may want to consider eliminating the docs from you TeX Live installation (which I don't normally recommend!!). Really, though, if 0.5 GB is a problem, your system is very small! Is this a dual Ubuntu/<something else> install?

comment Exporting .org files to LaTeX - Error
You have not installed all packages. wrapfig.sty is (apparently) in the Apt package texlive-latex-extra. The font might be in either texlive-fonts-extra or texlive-fonts-recommended. Can you post the .org` file (if fairly minimal)?

comment Long Source Titles are not broken into new lines in bibliography
Does your bibliography style (i.e., .bst) really require underlining for titles?

comment forcing breaks in gigantic footnotes
... Perhaps linguistics, too, has conventions that 'necessitate' long footnotes. The technical question asked here is, in any case, still valid (but requires an MWE).
