comment Plotting NAD83 zone 8 points atop OSM or Fusion Tables
The UTM Coordinate system has UTM zone identifiers. Your point lies on UTM zone 8W. This nomenclature is not used in GIS. UTM coordinate system has two flase origins for the North coordinate. If something is above the equator the false origin is 0 meters. For something south the equator false origin is 10,000,000 meters. UTM CRS in GIS applications usually only care about if something is north or south of the equator. Also bear in mind that you are using a datum that is intended to be used in North Aamerica, so you will have just a NAD83 UTM zone 8N and not a 8S based on the same datum.

comment How to snap and move circles by the center?
If your points have to be in the center of the buffers you can calculate the centroid of the buffers (vector, geometry tools, polygon centroids). That will give you a shape layer with the center of each buffer. Later you can move the desired points to the center of the buffer as described before.

comment Is there a union function for multiple layers comparable to ArcGIS in open source GIS like QGIS?
The merge shapes in to one function works for more than 2 shapes. I have been able to merge more than 20 at once.

You can use the move feature of the digitizing toolbar. Before doing that you can set a snapping threshold at settings/snapping options and there select the point/polygon layer you want to sanp to and set a treshold of 10-15 pixels. After that you have to select the layer where you want to move features, put this layer in edit mode, select the feature you want to move and chose the move feature icon and move your feature where you want to be.

comment How set correct options for displaying a grid in QGIS composer?
It even does change the hemisphere identifier (O or W) depending the language you are using. Having this option in composer is a great tool for final maps.

comment Lat Long to Useable values in QGIS
In order to convert deg/min second to decimal degrees I do it with the following formula in a spreadsheet deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600). for western longitudes and southern latitudes I do as follows -1*(deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600)). Usually I isolate the results by copy and paste values add a column with a name/identifier and save as a csv comma delimited file. Then you can use the "add delimited text layer" plug in to load the points in qgis. Hope it helps
