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.

I have the same warning myself. I have found no solution.

@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!

comment Texmaker: Syncronisation between PDF and TEX file is not working for one project
Check that the directories do not contain spaces or eight bits characters. Also, be sure that the combination of directory and file names is not too long. I have sometimes renamed files to four characters, and moved the project to c:\temp for compiling. If synctex then functions, you know that is something with the combination of file and directory names. Sometimes I have followed all the rules, but still the syncing is not functioning.

comment Chapter number aligned with text
@egreg When I look at the definition of \formatchaptertitle, it seems that the parbox will be to wide, the \parbox should have been shortened by the width of \chapterNumber, not only by 10pt. Do you agree? But how to messure that width and use it in the \dimexpr{}
