First of all, are both the farms running SharePoint Foundation? Are both the farms on the same patch level? If they are not running on the same patch level, you won't be able to restore a copied document library. Does any of the sites use the feature Publishing Infrastructure? Is versioning enabled? Do the library have custom permissions? There's multiple ...

I would either built a small console app using CSOM or use PowerShell and CSOM together. I haven't checked if this code works, but it probably look something like this: using (var context = TokenHelper.GetClientContextWithAccessToken(uri.ToString(), token)) { var web = context.Web; using (var fs = new ...

Try the below code in a content/script editor webpart. Change the name of the column. I see the max-width of the column is set to 500px. So if you want to make your column width more than 500px, then you have to change the max-width, otherwise that is not needed. I ran this code on SharePoint online and it worked fine. <script ...

Ultimately it comes down to the amounts of data that your architecture can handle. If you go with 1 site collection and put all the data (400GB) there, then it will all go to one content database (because site collection can have only one database). Microsoft recommends not exceeding 200 GB for an actively used content database. So this is a clear case where ...
