comment Accessing pgsql db set in cygwin from qgis installed on windows through osgeo4w, possible?
What do you mean a postgresSQL database in cygwin? Isn't the server just installed on the machine?

comment Retrieve a point coordinates from map canvas using QGIS API
Yeah they are the screen coordinates. Remove the other lines and just have the toMapCoordinates stuff.

Also don't do setProjectionsEnabled or setDestinationCrs. That is changing the canvas itself which might not be what you want. Use QgsCoordinateTransform if you need to transform from one to the other, or just toMapCoordinates is enough to go from click to canvas coordinates

comment Versions of Python & QGIS for new user to both to install?
Like Andre said, because QGIS installs it's own version of Python (for good or bad) you can still have different system Pythons installed. I have 3.4, 2.6, 2.7 + the QGIS ones.

comment Versions of Python & QGIS for new user to both to install?
Python 2.7 is going to be your best bet IMO for both.

comment Import QGIS Python modules in Python command line or standalone script
I would recommend using the Python that is installed with QGIS. It contains PyQt and the other stuff QGIS needs.
