comment How to create this simple model with arrow and text on the top?
Have a look in the LaTex-manual regarding the picture-environment, and also the documentation of the pict2e-package, ctan.mirrorcatalogs.com/macros/latex/contrib/pict2e/pict2e.pdf. You will find lot of tips there.

comment General question about controlling hyphenation and document layout
@FionaSmith If you are still editing the text, leave the bad hyphenation until the final touch up of the document. Such problem is typically the last thing worry about. Focus on the content.

comment Set author's name in small caps the first time it appears in the text
@barbarabeeton Citing page 6 second paragraph in the cleveref manual, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to determine if a word is at the start of a sentence. If you prefer first character in capitals when the sentence start (why?) you need two macros for each name, like cleveref and varioref.

comment Set author's name in small caps the first time it appears in the text
@Brent.Longborough Therefore, I wrote "recommend". Bringhurst, in addition to using all small caps, recommend letterspacing. So my recommendation would have been to put the word within a \textls{}-command (from the microtype-package). On the other hand, I would never had set the name in small capital at all. But as you say: A matter of taste (and local traditions).

I would have recommended \textsc{\MakeLowercase{Harry Smith}} to typeset the whole name in small capitals.

comment Multiple questions regarding formatting tables
@Chris Put the label outside the last bracket in the caption: \caption{Description ...}\label{DIV}, and use correct label name: "A description of the ... in Table~\ref{DIV} below"

comment Multiple questions regarding formatting tables
And in addition to @StephanLehmke comment: Set up a normal preamble to the table: Stat with {llll}. When the table compiles, then start to refine the column width - one by one. The same goes with other formatting. Apply formatting as the last touch, after you have populated the table and are sure that everything works. Them apply the formatting - one after one.

comment Multiple questions regarding formatting tables
Reference is not confusing: In standard LaTeX you repeat the label, letter by letter, inside the brackets: You mix this with the the fact that many LaTeX-user use the refernce type in the label name: \label{chapter:AppendixB} "see Appendix~ \ref{chapter:AppendixB}"

comment Multiple questions regarding formatting tables
Question 2 is easy: Use correct label in the referense, i.e. "Appendix~\ref{AppendixB}. Or better: use the ‘cleveref’-package. ‘longtable’ is centered by default. Remove the \centering-command. Also, remove the table-environment. You set the caption within the longtable it self. Read the documentation.

Maybe you can use nested tables and multicolums.

@user42987 You may also try ‘framebox’, forkosh.com/latex/ltx-237.html
