comment Is it possible to take a long exposure photograph during daytime?
Are you confusing "time lapse" with "long exposure"? Time lapse is usually a series of photos taken at intervals, which is then assembled into a video to speed up something that happens slowly - eg a seed germinating. It sounds more like you a looking to achieve a longer exposure - such as would show vehicle light trails at night. However, note that if you use too long an exposure then passing traffic will effectively disappear completely from the photo, leaving an empty-looking street. You could try a slow-ish exposure, and add a pop of second curtain flash to try and highlight a car.

comment What ISO should I use on my Nikon D5200 to avoid visible noise in 4×6 prints?
Have you tried printing a 6x4 or A4 print to see how the noise appears on output? You'll likely find that it's much less than you think when compared to noise you see when pixel peeping.

comment What is a good rule of thumb to use large aperture for portraits vs showing more background?
Concluding people "should" shoot with no flash? Really??? No. Just no. Talk about over-generalising. You might say that you wouldn't use on-camera flash as a main light (though even that is over-generalising), but to say don't use flash is just way off the mark. Two contemporary photographers that spring straight to mind that use flash for portrait work are David Hobby (Strobist) and Joe McNally. (You even suggested using flash earlier in your own answer!) As always with photography, you use the equipment and settings you need to give the finished photo the artistic vision you have for it.

comment What is causing this extreme glossy effect when using a polarizing filter?
@PaulCezanne: In terms of a citation, the best that springs to mind is the book Light Science and Magic by by Fil Hunter, Steven Biver, and Paul Fuqua; it's covered in there.

comment Licensing for wedding photos, to protect photographer, but allow freedom to clients?
With regards to producing output down the line, it's not unheard of that wedding photographers contact the bride and groom a year (or a few years) down the line to ask if they would like to purchase the negatives / files. This 1: removes the photographer's requirement to maintain the archive (should they wish to, of course) and 2: gives them a possible final amount of income when any further print / album sales are very unlikly. Perhaps your photographer might agree in advance to a similar arrangement?
