comment Using “Next to that” as an alternative to “Additionally” or “Moreover”
I don't think it's impossible to use "next to that" to mean "in addition to that"; most people would intuitively understand what it meant. But it's an odd, foreign-sounding locution anyway, and might be confused with "besides."

comment Is this a dangling participle? “To use the computer, it need to be powered.”
You seem to have more fundamental problems than dangling participles. You may benefit by asking this question at our sister site, English Language Learners.

comment the third conditional and the meaning of the particular sentence
I guess it depends on which side of the line you were. If you were arrested, it surely seemed like terror.

comment the third conditional and the meaning of the particular sentence
So the preceding sentence "But the meeting took place in an atmosphere of terror" is not a manifestation of "full-terror mode"? Doesn't sound too gradual to me.

comment Should I use “and anyway” or “and by the way” in the following case?
These definitions seem very academic and not really geared toward how people really use these discourse markers. In fact, by the way and anyway, which are classed here as antonyms, often mean exactly the same thing or have exactly the same effect: to introduce a topic that reinforces the thrust of the argument.

comment Is it correct to write “more simply?”
1. It's fine to write "more simply"; 2. But not where you put it. Try "Miguel explained math more simply than a book."

comment Overuse of “however” in my scientific writing?
Try using but where you feel however might be getting too much play. It is not informal at all, and shows up in, oh, every published paper you've ever read. Maybe in every published paper anybody has ever read.
