comment Map Package or Relative Paths for ArcMap MXD export
I suspect you also want to include layouts and such, but if you can skip that for some of them you should also consider using .lyr-files. I'm leaning towards it's easier to go with relative paths, but I'll leave the answering to someone with good arguments. MPK-files are supposed to be self-contained, that's their raison d'être, so I doubt you can create any synergies storage-wise between map packages.

comment How to avoid having the layer name in the field name?
I can't really see how that is a problem (is it?), but removing and recreating the join should restore the field names without layer name. As I said, it is by design so that you can tell which layer a field actually is in, especially when you add fields since these are placed to the very right in your table.

comment How to avoid having the layer name in the field name?
It sounds like you have join of some kind to your layer. Then it makes sense to distinguish between the two layers' fields.

comment Consolidate stream segments into stream network using ArcGIS Desktop?
What I meant was that you run Dissolve with the option to dissolve lines and not to create multipart features (checkboxes at bottom). However, since @Nir has tried this and it didn't work you are probably better of trying their function instead.

Try with Dissolve and "Unsplit lines" checked, "Create multipart features" unchecked. Then it'll merge all lines that have a common start or end, and create one feature per full stream.

comment Consolidate stream segments into stream network using ArcGIS Desktop?
In which way is that different from how you'd like it? Do you want each stream as one feature? Did you have the "Create multipart features" checkbox checked? Try using the "Unsplit lines" box instead. To split features that are non-connected but still the same row in your shapefile, you should use the Multipart To Singlepart function.

If the start node of one segment coincides with the end node of the previous segment, you should use Dissolve. If not, please add a bit more detail do your question, and preferably a screenshot.

comment Spatial join with HUGE datasets
@Vince, you are of course correct about that. This was originally designed for a somewhat different purpose. However, it shouldn't require too extensive changes to query the line layer instead of the polygon layer.

comment Spatial join with HUGE datasets
There must exist more efficient ways than a spatial join if your only target is to find out the amount of lines in each square? I'd do it with a Python script that clips the lines for each polygon (iterate over all polygons), count the lines that are left and write to the attribute table. Optionally create output files every few ten thousand polygons or so, just to be sure. That would also allow for batch processing more easily.

comment choice of number of neighbors in IDW
Then I'd suggest you try with a few different values and see what you get. You can also try with Krieging and Topo to Raster if you want alternative methods to compare with

comment choice of number of neighbors in IDW
@david_p, please include the above comment as an edit in your answer. NewAtGis, maybe you can post a screenshot (with scalebar or similar) of your data so we can have an actual case to discuss?

comment choice of number of neighbors in IDW
I believe the question was how to decide the amount of neighbours with mathematical reasoning (@NewAtGis, correct me here if I'm wrong), not where to enter the value in the GUI. Maybe you can elaborate on your answer to include that too?

comment ArcMap data links redirecting to location of exported map
Since you have relative paths, you don't somehow move/resave the mxd to the output (Maps) folder? It was just a thought that came to mind...
