I think that most of the thigs from UbuntuSoftwareCenter are woring ok. If there are some problems with the app you are trying to download you will see it in the comments. If the apps are good coded is other topic and you can't know that unless the software you are downloading is Open Source.
Installation directories should be defined in the debian/[applicationname].install file. Check if you set the correct path (/usr/lib) for your scripts and it should work.
You have downloaded a .deb file; the next step would be to do sudo dpkg -i nameofdebfile.deb. If you have done that, the contents are moved elsewhere and it's OK to delete the .deb file. If you haven't, the OS is not using it. As for the .ppd file: this was copied to a system location (under /etc or /usr) when you installed the printer. If the printer works ...
I want to minimize this list, based on assumption that there is dependency between some lib and each other in this list. You should not do this. The list of dependencies should include each library that your software directly depends on. The reason for this is that your binary requires that library, and exactly that library, to link correctly when ...

If you are talking about saving specific debs for other machines for offline install use dpkg-repack but if you want an offline repo for your own use there are ways of doing that (though not an area of my expertise) and it takes up maybe a terabyte at most.
I'll start with your last question. ppa:ansible/ansible is a special format that refers to Launchpad PPAs and can be used in Ubuntu and Ubuntu derivatives (at least). In terms of functionality, a PPA is just a regular repo. However, this exact format can't just be added into /etc/apt/sources.list, since apt doesn't recognize this format. Therefore, the URL ...
The package seems to be unavailable, but, very basically, here it is: Go to the site you would like to download from Download the *.deb file here Go to the directory where you saved (Most likely the downloads folder) cd ~/Downloads ls if the libhal1_0.5.14-8ubuntu1_i386.deb package is listed, sudo dpkg -i libhal1_0.5.14-8ubuntu1_i386.deb input password, y ...
Well, here goes: Download the file by clicking on a link in that page - select one in your continent, preferably from a country close to you (you can look at the two-letter country codes like es, in, etc. to determine that). Open the folder where the package was downloaded, and double click on the package file. It should open Software Center. Click on ...
