    Reuse Pattern can be a big timesaver, especially with repeated hardware in an assembly. And Fast Multi Instantiation can help too. But, I use Copy & Paste to repeat a part once or twice.

    To avoid confusion, only one drawing should be made to fully describe a part, so that the part can be made without any discrepancies. Depending on the complexity of the part, the drawing may require...

    Yes, this is wrong usage.

    Measures are, as the definition above, "found by measuring." In CATIA, the use of the Measure and Measure Between and Inertia tools would be considered "measures."

    First of all, I think you mean "dimension" when you say "measurement"

    How you dimension this part depends of the accuracy you need when the part is made. This looks like a formed sheetmetal part,...

    No, it's not necessary to fully constrain a sketch. CATIA will continue to use the sketch profile, constrained or not.

    Not fully constraining a sketch is considered bad practice. One reason is...

    This looks like a third-party software app that runs inside of CATIA. You will have to buy the software from OPTIS (a company owned by ANSYS), and install it with your CATIA system.

    The damaged corner looks pretty simple. You should be able to remove that section and add in a new corner with the basic tools in Part Design.
