comment list of tables do not show all the tables
Are you compiling twice to make sure the tables are getting included in the table of contents? The table of contents (and lists of tables or figures) absolutely require two full compilations to be fully and complete resolved.

comment Irregular spacing around a user-defined environment
I'd be inclined to use something like pdfparcolumns for this sort of thing. The setspace package will likely produce some surprising spacing around environments if you aren't careful or in some edge cases (but since this spaced out version is for editing, aesthetics seem rather beside the point).

\thispagestyle{empty} is probably what he meant.

comment Seperate URLs for each bibliographic entry which refers to the same source, but to different page(s); + 1 URL for the source in the \printbibliography
I think it is impossible to do with biblatex where BibTeX serves as the backend. Quite frankly, I can't really see how one could realistically do this Biber (realistically in terms of the amount of effort it would take to implement); and given the difficulty of implmentation, I'd don't see why you seem resistant to \newcommand{\urlcite}[3]{\footfullcite{#1}, p.~\href{#2}{#3}} as a simple workaround, which you use as \urlcite{<bib entry>}{<URL-to-page>}{<page num.>}. This is what I would consider if (and only if!) I were inclined to provide a URL for every page I happen to cite.

comment Seperate URLs for each bibliographic entry which refers to the same source, but to different page(s); + 1 URL for the source in the \printbibliography
I'm afraid that is impossible with backend=bibtex: the fields are hardcoded and can't be modified on the fly (and the bibliography drivers would be impossibly difficult to maintain if you had to modify them each time a new page url were going to be added to the .bib file. With backend=biber, it seems almost possible, but so complicated and clunky compared to my first suggestion as to be not worth it. If you are going to need to add information every time you cite a different page number, why not just add it to the .tex file? (I'll watch with interest to see if anyone answers, however.)

Please provide some guidance on how 123 or 456 or any arbitrary number correlates to a specific webpage. If they do not, you can simply write \footfullcite{Bestbook}, p.~\href{<URL string>}{123} (and you could put those into a single 3-argument command if you wanted), but it seems incredibly tedious to track down a URL for every single different page citation.... Note also that if different online book 'sites' have different means of reporting the pages, I don't think there can be a general answer to this question.

comment Ignoring parentheticals in LawTeX citations
Another example of the pointless inanity of common law citation schemes.... You at first say 'may' be ignored and then 'should'. If it is 'may', then I'd ignore it as it is much more logical and easier to implement programmatically. However, if it is indeed a 'should', then you're going to need to provide some guidance on where we can find the relevant packages.

comment Macro: Replace all occurrences of words which are identical to content of \label{…} into \nameref{…} (unless of course the \label itself)
I am sorry, but I'm not inclined to answer the general question when you already said it won't do what you need and that you anticipate asking for further modifications. Reliably good answers depend on good questions; and sometimes the questioner needs to do some of the hard work too. (And of course there are many free online resources for using regexp and sed, which is what I'd use.)

comment How to avoid floating of next section to the next page?
Please post a full, but minimal example. Code snippets are usually worthless for TeX-related problems. A proper example begins with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} and only includes enough content to demonstrate the problem.

Hmm, well, it's impossible to give advice on how to write regular expressions when all the conditions aren't clearly laid out. You need to think about how foo will appear and what (I guess) it will be embedded in to write a proper regexp (for example, one step in the process could be to regularize how foo appears, if it's just going to be stuck in randomly as you are typing; then then next step would be to do a replacement -- not a difficult script in most cases).

I cannot imagine why you'd ever end up with \src{\src{foo}} unless you used a careless search-and-replace method. I don't understand why you're not going straight from foo to \src{foo}.... Can't you simply search for ` foo` (i.e., with a leading space) and replace it with \src{foo}? TeX is not meant to be a swiss-army knife that you use for every type of problem (that's Perl!), so I can't endorse a non-TeX answer (even though they are possible).

I was joking (... but it's emacs). It's a little off-topic as an answer though. But can't your editor do search-and-replace? Even word processors manage (almost) that much.

This is not ideally done from within *TeX. Any number of text processing languages-focused languages (e.g., sed or awk) would be far more suitable. And any decent editor (even if there's really only one decent editor) could easily solve this problem.
