comment Bluetooth keyboard connection settings
I have not tested it, but Tasker should be able to help out here: it can act on "Bluetooth device ID:XYZ connected", and recently had the "select IME" functionality added. If Tasker cannot do so by itself, some addon like Secure Settings might enable that. Worth checking at least.

There's a "More" in between (Settings→Wireless & network→**More**→Mobile→Access Points). Sorry for my omission...

comment No active profile issue for Tasker to Zooper widget
I've never used Zooper, but that sounds as if the task doesn't get triggerd. Have you just setup the task, or also a profile/event to trigger it? If so, maybe the app you're using doesn't correctly support this (i.e. doesn't inform on new messages).

APN stands for Access Point Name, and gives the device the configuration to access the network behind (see Settings→Network→Mobile→Access Points). Your carrier should be able to either send you a configuration SMS, or at least specify the details to configure here.

comment Micromax A26 USB Debugging mode Not working
Please change "ur" spelling and avoid things like leet-speak. Here are many non-native-English-speaking participants which already have a "hard time" without that.

No, that's just where downloads go to. Do you have a data plan at all? Can you e.g. call up web sites with your browser? Messages with pictures attached are MMS, and require an Internet connection, and often a specifically configured APN (provider specific, so you might need to contact your carrier).

comment installing app without copying apk file
I still don't see what advantage that should give. Once installed, anybody with physical access to the device could simply use apps like AppMonster to grab the .apk of any installed app. See Dan's answer.
