comment methods for converting coordinate datum and format in python?
This number seems to distinguish the MSVC version between MSVC 2005 up to 2013. You should not mix binaires build against different MSVC. I think to remember that gisinternals does not support the python bindings like osgeo4w does.

comment Y-coordinates offset in Tilemill
Confirmed here with own mbtiles, even with datasources in WGS84. It is not a QGIS bug; if I use GDAL to transform to geotiff, it is shifted too.

comment Adding Eastings and Northings as attributes automatically to a point layer in QGIS
The virtual fields update on adding a new point. No need for save of the layer or project to see the values in the attribute table.

comment Qgis - Projection Problem with EPSG:2272
EPSG:2272 is a real EPSG code. ESRI have set up a similiar code ESRI:102729, which is included in QGIS too.

Keep an eye on the field type: it should be decimal (not the default integer), and for degrees with a good precision.

Unfortunately, this method mises the automatically part of the question. You get the coords for all existing points, but new points created after that will remain empty. The virtual fields from the other answer update themselves with every new point you create.

comment How to run OSgo4W shell script on Windows?
sh files are used in the linux world. The Windows command line equivalent are .bat files. These do not need a sh command to start them.

comment Problem with Orfeo Toolbox integration in QGIS
... and make sure that you have installed the otb package!. The processing/sextante toolbox is only an interface to otb, it does not contain otb itself.

comment Create a buffer in decimal degrees
Moving towards to the poles, the lon distance decreases, but the lat distance remains nearly constant. So there is no simple scaling possible. Reprojection is the only way to go.

I missed something at step 5, you might have got a single multipolygon from that.

comment Merge multiple bus stops with same name
I guess your data is still in WGS84 degrees. Then the buffer will be 5 degrees wide. I took the data from my Postgis database, where the coordinates are in EPSG:900913. You can use EPSG:3857 or your local UTM grid zone as well. Or use a smaller value for the buffer.

comment Y-coordinates offset in Tilemill
Can you link to that blogpost in your question? Maybe you should set your postgis database to 900913 as well.

comment How can I find the version of a toolbox used in QGIS
If you can not find the file, you have no otb installed on your system. It is not installed by the qgis packages!
