comment How can I define an option “packet” for plots so I can only alter the definition and all plots with that “packet” will change appearance?
Freda, I agree with tkott — this question was asked previously and has received good answers that address your question.

@acl Don't look at the first graph... scroll down where the states are distorted according to the data

comment Converting expressions into functions
Instead of writing a = x and then trying to wrestle with it, why not simply write f[x_] := x or if you need to evaluate the rhs, f[x_] := Evaluate@foo? Further still, if you need to simultaneously assign it to a for whatever purpose, f[x_] := a = x? Is there some reason you're doing it in a roundabout way?

@SixtySuit Uh? I don't understand what you mean... If you need Case1, then make Case1 a separate context.

comment How to clear just variables defined in one notebook?
It's a decent start, but there are several ways to define variables. For instance, :=, /:, :^=, etc. You can also define several variables at once, as {foo, bar, baz} = ... Also, there's the possibility of strings such as "foo = ..." showing up as false positives.

comment Width of two plots
This is a duplicate of this one (see my answer there). You'll have to also fix the ImagePadding (and perhaps PlotRangePadding). The slightly different paddings are because one has thick lines and the other doesn't.

comment Gradient/ColorFunction in Disk with transparent background
Hmmm... possibly a duplicate of mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/7657/5. Silvia's answer is probably what you're looking for. In short, generate the gradient using any of the plotting functions, set an alpha channel and clip it to a disk region and texturize a polygon with that.
