From the top:
1a. No; but you can set numbered markers, for both clips and the sequence.
1b. No; you can delete one or all.
1c. You have to select the clip in order to activate the command.
1d. You can only do this in the Marker dialog.
2. No direct way to do this. Delete either the portion before or after the edit, and then extend the clip to fill the gap. Clunky, yes.
3. No, the Track Select tool only operates to the right.
4. Audio meters are vertical only.
5. The tab size matches the title of the tab; no way to change this.
6a. No keyframe shortcut.
6b. It doesn't work in the Timeline panel, but in the Effects Controls panel, you can hold down Shift to snap the CTI as you drag.
6c. You can lasso multiple keyframes in the Effects Controls panel with the standard selection tool, or you can use the Pen tool in the Timeline panel. Just be sure to start within the graphical representation of the clip.
7. No, it's only a program preference.

Welcome to the forum.
2. A simple one. After I've used the razor tool on a clip... how can I join the clip again?
You have not actually cut the file, just have written some instructions to the PRPROJ (Project file) in XML. As Colin notes, you can Delete part, then extend the other to cover that place on the Timeline, or, if you have not done an Exit, then Open, use either Ctrl+Z (Undo), or use the History Panel, to Undo things.
Track Select Tool
3. Can the Track Select Tool, select all the clips to the LEFT, instead of all the clips to the right? In avid there's a Select Right command, which works as the track selector, but there's also a Select Left command, which does the same, but to the left.
Use the cursor to "lasso" the Clips to the left.
Think that Colin addressed all others, but will go back and read each of his comments. Unfortunately, the forum software, Jive, does not allow for me to do this easily, like other forum software does. I can only see the post, to which I am replying, unless I open a bunch of tabs, and then try to navigate between each of those.

I think he's well aware of that. Avid lets you delete the edit in a split clip, and I think this is what he's referring to. Premiere does not have this capability, since edit points are not selectable.
Collin, Bill, thank you very much, you've saved me tons of time. And what I meant with the razor tool was what Collin said.
A shame that most of the things I wanted aren't available, they're all quite handy. But well, avid isn't perfect either. I'll try to submit them.
I'm probably going to come back with more questions... but those where the main ones.
Many thanks again!
