comment Are perpendicular lines still perpendicular after converting from UTM zone 15 to 16 (or between two neighboring zones)?
Can't you reproject your data from Utm 16 to Utm 15 and review the results?

ArcMap has a "Mirror Features" tool. This will create a mirror image copy of a feature, across a line. It is available in the Customize menu.

comment Creating fishnet grid polygon layer from set of ortho rasters in ArcGIS for Desktop?
You might try Gdalindex. This free command line tool will create a Shapefile with a Polygon for each image in a folder. Each polygon will contain the original image name and extent. There are other options to the tool.

comment Using Editor tools in Arcpy script
The Editor toolbar Merge is performing a Dissolve and then delete. You pick the Polygon Attributes to preserve. I Don't think this single tool is available in the System Toolbar, but you can mimic it.

comment Using Editor tools in Arcpy script
You could run any geoprocessing tool such as Dissolve or Merge to an in-memory FC, then append the original FC. There are different options with Merge, Dissolve to Sum a field.

comment Using Editor tools in Arcpy script
You should be able to create a Python Addin to merge your polygons. Will you delete the input Polygons after the merge?

comment ogr2ogr append 1 row to a File GDB feature class's data table
Do you need a sub-query to select from Oracle, then have an outer query add fields not in the sub-query?

comment Tiff will not update georeferencing
After you georeference the tif, you should Rectify to apply the transformation. This will write out another geotiff. You can then define the Spatial Reference also.

comment Replacing each point in a point feature with a specific shaped polygon
Maybe you should transfer your Point attributes to the Polygon layer using a Spatial Join. I'm pretty sure you cannot update a Point geometry with a Polygon geometry if your data is in Shapefile or Geodatabase. Esri does not allow mixed geometry types. Each feature class has a defined feature type, that cannot be changed.
