comment Marking notifications as unread
I don't know of a single Android GUI layer/launcher that treats notifications as anything more than what they are; quick status updates that something happened in the background or while you weren't actively using your phone. Once you've seen them they've served their purpose. Some SMS apps can display a "persistent notification" as long as there are unread messages in your SMS app; that's app-dependent. Others show you that you have unread or new messages with something in their app/widget icon, with or without a notification (persistent or otherwise).

comment How can I find out what app is using my GPS from the background?
Unfortunately a search through Google Play for variations on "GPS Monitor" or "GPS Usage Tracker" only showed apps that use GPS to track or monitor things (yourself, your trucks/drivers, your kids, etc) rather than tracking GPS usage itself.

comment Turning off just email notification sound
It would help to know what he's using as his mail program on the phone, what OS/Launcher he's running (if he's not using the OEM software) and how deeply those two are integrated. Hints; look through the mail app's settings for notification-related settings, and if that doesn't get you anywhere, look in the Notifications and/or Sounds section of the phone's main Settings; there may be a selection specifically for Mail that is used by his mail app.

comment Marking notifications as unread
Sounds less like you want to mark notifications as unread, and more like you want to mark text messages as unread. Question; does CM support tasks? on my HTC phone with Sense, I can turn any e-mail, text or social update into a task, which then organizes them in one place so I can easily come back to them later.

comment Cancelling notifications for app updates
Why would it not be a good idea? Sounds like exactly what the OP wants. Coupled with the "Update over Wi-Fi only" Play Store setting (so you know you're not sucking valuable bandwidth when you're out and about) and the fact that permissions changes require manual update, it's pretty easy to just let Play Store do its thing.
