comment Is there a special type of screw to hang a light fixture onto the ceiling?
Another term used to describe this type of screw is as a "self tapping screw". The term tapping refers to the common tool called a "tap" which is normally used to cut threads inside a hole.

comment How do I even out a pair of bookcases on an uneven floor?
Your approach to attach them to the wall does depend to an great extent to two things. First the quality and integrity of the shelf unit. And then also how much weight will be going on the shelves. ------ Often these types of shelves are pretty flimsy with particle board butt joints between the shelves and the sides. Many also only have a colored paper board back. Neither of these scenarios are particularly great for the "screw 'em to the wall" approach. That is why I would even more recommend the scribe and cut method. All the weight goes to the floor.

comment How can I repair a towel bar with one end ripped out of the wall?
This is a good idea on how to fix this broken bracket. I would like to suggest that it may be a good idea to first remove the bracket shoulder from the wall and pre-glue (with the JB-Weld) the metal rod into the shoulder piece. Then as a second step glue the shoulder back onto the towel rack bar. Note that it is possible that there may be a small set screw from the under side of the towel bar rack bar that permits removing the broken off shaft from inside the chrome bar piece. If so it will be way easier to glue up with these pieces free unto themselves.

comment Plumbing alteration has created vacuum in upstairs toilets
Ditto. Plumbing installations often need more than one vent line. If the vent is on the down flow side of both toilets then when for sure when the toilet closest to the vent will create a suction toward the further toilet. I think that the ideal situation is that there be a vent stack by each bathroom toilet.

comment How do I remove a pole that's rusted into a sleeve in the ground?
If the pipes are fully rusted into the sleeves it will be most likely that it will be impossible to separate them. It depends a lot on how tight the original fit was, how long they have been together with the ability for water to enter the gap and lead to the rusting of the parts.

Do yourself a big favor for reliability and use the screws to secure the wires. Those poke-in wire attachement points are garbage.
