comment What free software can be used for print-quality map production?
QGIS allows you to style geographic data and export print-quality graphics (PDF, PNG, etc) at your desired resolution/size using print composer. If you need to do anything else I'd suggest using Inkscape. This workflow mimics what cartographers do using ArcMap and Adobe Illustrator.

@Fairy hopefully someone can help you do this with R, but this is an easy thing to do with a desktop GIS...

comment How to geocode a single address in Python Script/ ModelBuilder?
You need a geocoder, or a geocoder service, and you would use the 'Geocode an Address' tool in the model, where the input is a text variable and the locator is the geocoder mentioned above.

comment How to merge an excel file with a shapefile in r
Is this something you're going to do more than once, ie. you want to automate it with R, or will you be doing it only once, and hence you could use QGIS to put this data together before using it in your analysis?
