comment Convert imported PDF to an image
@DJS I am not following what you mean. images types such as png, jpeg, gif, etc... are file-based image formats, and not in-memory based image formats. Once read, they are converted to Mathematica Graphics. For example, to covert png to gif, you'd import the png file to Mathematica, then export it back as gif. Or may be I am not understanding what you mean by the question.

try f = {Cos[s/Sqrt[2]], -Sin[s/Sqrt[2]], s/Sqrt[2]}; Manipulate[ ParametricPlot3D[f, {s, -z, z}, PlotRange -> {{-1, 1}, {-1, 1}, {-2, 2}}], {{z, .1, "extent"}, .1, 2 Pi, .1, Appearance -> "Labeled"} ] and click on the play arrow in the control for "extent" to see the animation

I just copied your code and it ran as is. Here is screen shot. !Mathematica graphics maybe this function was not used when I run it. do not know.

comment How can I load << MathWorld`Curves`?
I have all the packages, but they are not updated to new version of M. For example, this one does not run on V10.1 since it uses BeginPackage["MathWorldCurves",{"UtilitiesFilterOptions"}] and "Utilities`FilterOptions" is no longer supported, see reference.wolfram.com/language/Compatibility/tutorial/Utilities/… so even if get these files, someone needs to update them to run in new M. May be contact the original author and see if there is newer version. The Mathworld packages I have are called version 6. I think that was the zip file name. Do not remember now.

comment Plotting (Graphing) a Quadratic Function with Vertex and Roots
Is this what you want: r1 = 15/10 + I Sqrt[7]/2; p = Expand[(x - r1)*(x - Conjugate[r1])] Plot[p, {x, -3, 3}] which gives on V 10.01 !Mathematica graphics the poly is 4-3 x+x^2

comment Manipulating parameters in a complex algorithm
it looks good. Tried it, was little slow when N was 500 and higher. May be this is algorithm tune-up. But if it works for you and no more issues, then you can answer your own question with your answer above. Unless you have any specific questions.

comment Error using Nsolve with system of two equations: “Use Reduce”
@DanielLichtblau thanks! I actually did not notice that NSolve accepts ranges, now it works much better. Updated answer.

comment Error using Nsolve with system of two equations: “Use Reduce”
I tried using Ersek RootSearch, which is supposed to be able to find roots in given range, but on V 10.01 something changed. Now I get No more memory available. Mathematica kernel has shut down. Try quitting other applications and then retry. This package looks like it is no longer maintained. library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/4482 It worked ok on version 9.01

comment Manipulating parameters in a complex algorithm
To use second argument of dynamics, yes, you create each control using direct Dynamic syntax. For example, for the slider, you use Manipulator etc.. Then add the specific logic right there in the second argument as pure function. This way, the second argument acts like the callback. Much easier to manage. here is an example mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/42796/… I do all my demos using this method now. I find this method easier to work with.

comment Manipulating parameters in a complex algorithm
If you look at this link it summarizes all the different cases for Manipulate. For you example, I would use the second argument of dynamics, it is the most flexible way to handle very complicated events and interactions since it is based on then event/callback way of looking at things.
