comment which pronoun do I use here, “he” or “him”?
Hi trin and welcome to Writers. Please try to use meaningful titles for your questions -- don't use something like "editing question" but instead try to summarize your actual question. I've edited several of your titles; please take a look at those edits to see what I mean.

comment Is the use of the preposition “on” and the parentheses in the sentence below correct?
Glad to help @midomido. If this answer meets your needs you could accept it (so other people will know you're satisfied), but it's also totally fine to hold out for something better.

@midomido unfortunately I don't know if there are dialects of English where "on" would be used -- I don't know of any, but I don't want to say none exist. As far as I know "for" is never wrong, so I would opt for that. (I'll clarify my answer.)

comment Instantiate a Video Player?
It depends on the audience. I'm a technical writer and I use the word "instantiate" if I'm writing for, say, Java programmers, because it's technically correct. But if I were writing end-user doc for non-programmers I probably wouldn't.

comment Instantiate a Video Player?
We've had other questions here about words that have a precise technical meaning, I thought. I don't think this is off-topic.
