comment What function in Bookmarks+ deals with multiple bookmarks with the same name?
Don't use assoc-string, memq, and the like. Use existing access functions and predicates from Bookmark+ or bookmark.el - that's what they're for. See updated answer for some code that might help. Your question keeps morphing... This kind of dialog-Q&A is not really what StackOverflow is for. I hope you have an answer to your original question by now. ;-)

comment What function in Bookmarks+ deals with multiple bookmarks with the same name?
Are you asking how to identify the file location of a given bookmark (e.g., so you can tell whether you've already bookmarked that file? If so, the answer is bookmark-get-filename. If not, please clarify.

comment how to set a kill string length criterion for storing in kill ring
Dunno why someone downvoted you. I think this kind of question is helpful. My suggestion would be to send an enhancement request (M-x report-emacs-bug) asking for a hook of filter functions, to be able to control what gets added as a kill. In Emacs 23 they added option kill-do-not-save-duplicates, for example, which is good. But it would be good for users to be able to further discriminate wrt what gets added to the kill-ring. Instead of adding an option for each such possibility (e.g., for your case, kill-ring-entry-length), we should be able to add a filter function to a hook.

comment How can I close all buffers in Emacs?
If you do that then you pretty much might as well be closing Emacs and restarting it. ;-) It is really unlikely that you want to kill all buffers. That includes "internal" buffers that Emacs pretty much expects to be there. You can do it, but I doubt that it is what you really want to do. I'd suggest maybe killing all buffers whose names do not start with a space character, for starters.

comment Emacs Dired: Sorting by time / date as default
@lawlist points to one Emacs Wiki page that covers this topic. Here is the page that deals with the topic generally. It covers multiple libraries that help with Dired sorting.

comment Turn off “Java/l Abbrev” mode on JS files in emacs
Recursively bisect your init file to find out where you are causing this problem, and then take care of it. Use command comment-region to comment out 1/2, then 3/4, then 7/8,... of your init file until you find out what you are doing that causes this. Then don't do that.

comment How to copy the whole line with easy way in emacs?
@lawlist: Where do you see a built-in copy-line command? I don't see that, using emacs -Q. There are several versions of such a command on the wiki, but I don't see one built in.

What do you mean by "autodetecting more general regions"?
