Try the package bigfoot. It will often result in much better layout of the footnote.

Either let the pictures float, or do as @Steven B. Segletes suggests.

comment Blank space in text after figures and tables
Use use the report class, which typeset the text with \flushbottom. To flush the last line with the bottom margin, LaTeX add space where it finds it appropriate to add space. For example before and after a picture. If you let the figure float, LaTeX may move it around and add text lines to the page, giving better total layout without lots of blank space. When you add H LaTeX has limited possibility to typeset correctly. Try using \raggedbottom in the preamble.

comment Changing top margin for second page only? \vspace inserts extra whitespace
Does the primary heading always start a new page? Or do you have to have a solution that test if the heading is the first line of a page, an then increase the space?

comment changing chapter number and first letter font size
You may achieve something similar by using 24 pt small capitals and set the first letter in upper case. I would have started with KOMA-script, which make this simple (just look at the addtokomafont command in the manual). Also, memoir makes this pretty simple, but you have to start reading the manual and provide us with an MWE.

comment How can I input normal quotes in LyX?
Well, LaTeX shows the normal quotes, what you ask for is not a quote in any language, typographically.

comment Convert all all-caps words to small caps
LaTeX expl3 has an l3regex package that may handle such issue. Or run your source code through an external program like SED. I assume this is something you will do one time, so you may do it semi automatically by repeately search and replace in your editor (Texworks supports regular expression).

comment MinionPro, microtype and \j - Is there a way to get rid of a strange warning?
@cfr Probably. I have used MinionPro for years and lived with the error (I never use dotless j). I looked into the type1-directory today. I have only eight MinionPro .pfb there. There are four pairs, the stem of the names are the same, but four has LCDFJ in addition. The four *LCDFJ.pfb are 0 byte files. I only use pdflatex. If I use \i, I get a dotless i, if I use \j, pdflatex fails with the following message: !pdfTeX error: pdflatex.EXE (file C:/texmf-local/fonts/type1/adobe/MinionPro/MinionPro-RegularLCDFJ.pfb): unexpected end of file.

@Manuel do you have MinionPro installed? If not, there is no idea to provide an MWE. If you have MinionPro installed, you will know which error message the OP is referring to!
