comment Generic version of Cyanogenmod for any Android device?
To answer your EDIT, I have no experience with these types of things, but it should be possible. Take a look at how to port CM: wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Doc:_porting_intro Of course, that means, development work, and asking about how to build custom ROMs is out of topic here.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
@trejder I see your problem. You're clicking on the wrong button - the three dots (aka overflow button). You need to click on the tab (e.g. MAIN, INTERNET, FUN, TAB). Let me know if it works.

comment Difference between installing SuperSU using Play Store versus a custom recovery that installs it from a file?
Question: Even if you had su in /system, would you or apps still have root access even without SuperSU? You might want to rephrase SuperSU as being the graphical front-end, and the "gatekeeper".

comment set persistent search bar
Some launchers (e.g. Nova) provide a way to show / hide the persistent search bar. So, it's not just "regardless of launcher". Could you specify if you are using the stock launcher or a custom launcher right now? If custom, which one?

Are you on Power saver mode? That can disable the haptic feedback.

comment How to delete bloatware from Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 without a PC
You need to root your phone to uninstall bloatware. Search for heimdall; it's the Odin equivalent for Mac. You need to flash a custom recovery first, then root your phone. I don't know / have the specific files you'll need. See if you can find something on Google.
