Blank Space on the left of footer

You need to change the left margin setting in the paragraph style

two spaces

Do you mean "two lines," your lines of type are farther apart than they
should be? ("Spaces" are between words, what you get when you use the
Space Bar.)

Space between lines is controlled by the...

Understanding tabs in TOC n styles

Tab _stops_ are automatically spaced (the US versions put them 1/2 inch
apart, I suppose European ones would put them 1 cm apart), and you can
change that default distance.

how do i overlap text purposely

You know how to use "Line Spacing: Exactly." You can set that figure
as low as 1 pt. "12 on 10" is not impossible for normal text.

Want to apply many formatting changes across more than 1 document

Correct. To apply the format of an existing document to a new document,
you create a new template (alongside normal.dotx, or normal.dotm if it
has macros), but you can't simply apply new formatting...

TOC width

You set the margins of the TOC paragraph styles just like any other
paragraph style. You probably have to do each level separately, though.

Scroll down removes text

A hardware problem, nothing to do with Word? Incidentally, "reinstalling"
rarely accomplishes anything at all except a big waste of time (and loss
of customizations).

The question is not clear. When you insert text, the following text needs
to move forward to make room for the added text.
