comment How do I italicize fonts that don't have an italic variant in Illustrator?
Impact Italic does not exist to my knowledge. But your use of "italicize" implies that you are used to Microsoft Word, which automatically slats every font, which is not recommended at all.

comment How should I position the letters in a square logo to read “H S S C”?
Because it's hip to do so of late. Just google "hipster logo".

comment Optimal font color on #fff body (esp. mobile, web fonts)
I think there is no definitive answer to this. As you have stated, you have your own opinion what looks good. and it will depend on the font and on the context. Higher contrast has it's benefits and downsides and the same goes for low contrast. So "optimal" only exists in a context of a specific use-case.

comment Should I upconvert low-res images to 300dpi for printing?
"The problem with this is many of the images will then be much smaller than their target print size." This is why there is a warning. While that is the correct method, it shows you that the material you have is maybe not suitable for print.

comment HD Video Still (1920x1080, 72dpi) upscaling resolution for banner use (6x2.5 metres)
You don't lose quality, the quality stays exactly the same. And there is no work around either as you can only show the information/pixels you have.

comment What do you call this distorted text effect and how can I reproduce it?
I'd call that a text illustration. What have you tried to achieve this specific effect? Where have you failed?

comment Can I Illustrator Symbols with editable text that does not update all instances?
It is possible. Does your text get converted to vectors? I am unsure what the problem is.

comment Why do my clients hate anything below 12 pt?
There is not one "right" answer but: 12 looks good on screen, so if they look at it only on a screen they will feel that this is a good choice. Secondly, 12 was default for MS Word if I am not mistaken and people got used to it. Thirdly: people who have to judge on font sizes for the first time (or any design decision) tend to go with what they feel is least risky. Ergo, bigger logo, bigger text, boring colors.
