This is an oft-asked question, which Bjorn Furuknap nails in his article here: http://blog.furuknap.net/find-number-of-users-currently-logged-on-to-a-sharepoint-site
If you've provisioned the Web Analytics Service Application then you'll have access to some out of the box reporting functionality on a site basis. This MSDN blog has a good overview for you http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ecm/archive/2010/03/21/introducing-web-analytics-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx Paul.
The usage data comes from a SQL Database named WSS_UsageApplication. When you provisioned web analytics, a reporting database was created. You can query this database safely from my understanding because it was designed for reporting. It is an aggregation of data from WSS_UsageApplication. Some query data is in a table named WAQueryTextAggregationByDate. My ...

You should be able to accomplish this with SharePoint Web Analytics. This should be in your Site Settings. Site Collection Root -> Site Actions Menu -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Web Analytics Reports. The report should be called Top Queries http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663487.aspx
I do not know of anyway to look only at if a user logged in or not. What you can do is go to the site settings, site collection administration, and then audit log reports. I would run a custom report or a content viewing report depending on the version of SP (online or hosted). Online SP does not support content viewing auditing but you could get a decent ...

As Zerg00s said it depends on business needs or what a client wants from SharePoint. SharePoint can be used as a core product to help end user with there meetings, decisions or even public websites but I know few organizations that have it there but they just use it for uploading documents. So it entirely depends on what your client want to do, but as far ...
Anchors and GET parameters unfortunately get stripped out of the referrers, as I've learned the hard way. What I would do would be to set up a series of web part pages with a redirection to the target content, and then link to those pages in your newsletters, so that you can collect those pages as referrer targets. It's not pretty and it'd be annoying to ...
I'd bat it back by giving them an estimate for doing the research, including the development effort to get the stats up and running, the duration to run the test, and the gather the results, and finally the work to remove the 'unwanted' buttons. Full days tasks, too. At you or a developer's day rate, and find out why they want to justify that cost for ...

An option would be to parse IIS's logs. It will give you the detailed log of every URL requested by each user. This is especially helpful when you are trying to track views across the entire farm. You will need to aggregate the logs for each front end server. Further reading: SharePoint IIS Traffic Analysis - Describes loading the log data into a SQL ...
If you turn on auditing at the site collection level, from that data you can get everything you asked for above. The data you get will be raw but you can do some excel magic to get the statistics you require.
I take it you got a good reason for doing this in PowerShell -realize that you will only get a warning/report each time you run this script unless you in the script generate event log entries or similar for other monitoring devices. Also consider using the OOB functionality for Quota and Quota warnings where you get notifications when site collections are ...
