comment “Fehlen” weak, “empfehlen” strong. But “finden” and “empfinden” both strong. Cases when [some_verb] conjugates differently from [prefix+some_verb]?
Schallen is both strong and weak. Example: Lautstark scholl es über die Brücke, die Falun Gong Anhänger schwiegen zunächst konzentriert wie in einer Meditation.

@ThorstenDittmar (be)-ringen and (ein)-weichen are two excellent examples. What's the problem with these?

There's even a word "some_verb" = "some_verb" where "some_verb".conjugation != "some_verb".conjugation. The difference is its meaning. Unfortunately, I can't come up with this word off the top of my head.

Without having any idea what darohne should express, I'd tend to understand it as an opposite to damit. For that reason, I think if you trying to find an existing expression it had to be "ohne dass" with two 's'. Ex: "A: Schreib es auf, damit[=auf dass] du es nicht vergiss. B: Ich hab es mir schon aufgeschrieben, darohne[=ohne dass] du es bemerkt hast.

comment Alternate sentence construction using “lassen”
Ich würde nicht sagen, dass Reim eher selten benutzt wird. Allein schon die Wörter Paarreim, umfassender Reim, etc. werden nicht durch das Verb beschrieben. Laut dem Uni Wortschatz ist das Verb in der Häufigkeitsklasse 17, Reim hingegen 14. Eine kleinere Zahl bedeutet hier 'häufiger'. Und Paarreim etc. sind da noch nicht eingeschlossen.

comment When does one write numbers with words, when with figures (e.g. “drei” statt “3”)?
In einer Masterarbeit würde ich z.b. schreiben: "Von den 77 Schnittstellen musste ich nur eines implementieren." "Siebenundsiebzig" ist zu unleserlich, "1" ist nicht "richtig genug", also breche ich deinen Styleguide, es nicht zu mischen. Auch wenn ich sonst dem Styleguide zustimme und ihn genauso handhabe.
