You may want to review our frequently asked questions on vector grids.

comment Listing data sources in ArcGIS map (*.mxd) without opening it?
To do a GIS inventory I suggest arcpy.da.Walk in conjunction with the above.

comment Convert field types in GDB with Python
It's very similar to both examples in the help for arcpy.da.UpdateCursor although I think the second one will be the easiest to adapt.

comment Convert field types in GDB with Python
If your data is clean then this should be quite straightforward (about 5-6 lines of code) and fast using arcpy.da.UpdateCursor and wrapping a float function around the strings you get from the text field. I think you should do that in a test script separate from the code that you have presented so that you gain that important skill before trying to integrate it back into your main code.

comment projection for high accuracy small areas
I'm guessing that 'plano topográfico local' will translate to 'local coordinate system' which I think means that you will not find an EPSG code for it because it may have been created as a "one-off".

Another useful place to start may be at Topology Basics

comment How to use Build (Coverage) tool of ArcGIS for Desktop?
Unfortunately, that's a large topic in its own right, and one that I am quite rusty on, with no time to regain fluency at the moment.

comment How to make list of nodes at end points of polylines that connect them to others using ArcGIS for Desktop?
For someone new to GIS I think you will be better to focus on Geodatabase Topology and Geometric Networks than Coverages which are from the old Esri architecture that began to be superseded from the mid-late 1990s.

comment How to use Build (Coverage) tool of ArcGIS for Desktop?
I am not convinced that this is a sensible tool to use nowadays when trying to find a solution for your earlier question. I think you would be better to pursue Geodatabase Topology than Coverage Topology.

I was surprised to see a coverage being proposed here - do you think they still have a role to play? I noticed an answer at gis.stackexchange.com/a/1748 which seems to be describing the geodatabase equivalent.

@naaeemmohammad 10.2.2 is the version and ArcMap is the application that you are using. Your license level will be Basic, Standard or Advanced.

That sounds like it may be a new question. If you decide to ask it then be sure to include some details like a diagram describing what you are trying to do, what you have tried and where you are stuck.

I'm not aware of an English word "snippled" - it is snippet that I keep referring to: dictionary.reference.com/browse/snippet

comment Value Error with Float/Integer/double Fields in Python?
It is actually much more informative which has enabled me to start to answer your question, and to see if that question can start to become more focussed.

comment Modify File Name with Python
We just need to see enough of your code to see the error. In your case your whole code is not much more than a snippet so I am happy for you to post that but what I have not seen is an error that tells us the line number on which you are seeing an error and the precise wording of that error so it can be lined up against your code.

Please be aware that we do not offer a code writing/revising/debugging service but are happy to try and help with any focussed questions that you may have about using GIS site-packages for Python.

comment Modify File Name with Python
To try and work with the focussed Q&A format that we use here to resolve many questions very quickly I would ask that you review meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353 If all you need to do is to "generate a file output name consisting out of the name of the feature class + name of the attribute" then it is just the code snippet that you are using to try and do that which we need to see edited into your question - and any error that occurs when you run it.

comment Modify File Name with Python
Now that we can see the code it appears to be the same as the code provided in two later duplicates, and so presumably it will error in the same way that you were mentioning in the first of those two duplicates. If this code errors, then can you please include the exact error message from your provided code so that we will need to do less guessing before being able to start helping you.

comment Value Error with Float/Integer/double Fields in Python?
The error that you have included is only part of what I was expecting, and unfortunately the least useful part. Can you please try running your code from an IDE like IDLE and provide us with the whole error - in particular the bit that tells us the line number of your script and what it was executing when it errored.
