comment Why isn't it appropriate to use an exclamation point in an essay? And how can I get around that?
Are you allowed to italicize or embolden the statement for emphasis? For that particular statement, in the context of a research paper, I would recommend phrasing it in a way that adds emphasis, as Hot Licks said.

comment Can the word “information” be used with both singular and plural nouns?
You can usually pick out a modifier which makes the uncountable noun countable, e.g. those pieces of information. Because this refers to it in a singular state, the pronoun them becomes ambiguous in that context. You may want to refer to the information using it, instead of them.

comment A word to describe someone constantly seeking bewilderment
Ah, I just saw awe and not bewilderment. A philosopher, maybe? "The term 'philosopher' comes from the Ancient Greek φιλόσοφος (philosophos) meaning 'lover of wisdom'." - Wikipedia

You're looking for a single word, right? Adrenaline junkie would work well, otherwise.

comment Differentiate between past and present just by pronunciation when word is followed by d- or similiar sound
I was going to post a similar answer. Native speakers that don't pronounce the -ed are not enunciating. In those instances, a native speaker would determine which they meant by using context clues from the surrounding sentences.
