comment Is it possible to stop emacs from down translating my key chords?
The second part of the question says " I'd also like to know what advantage this (dubious) feature offers...", so that's why I posted this as an answer. But I'll also answer the first part of the question.

comment How does this directory use so much space
If you run du without -s it will tell you the space each file consumes under /var. sudo du -h /var > /tmp/foo and then look through /tmp/foo.

comment Can it harm if I shutdown without closing applications?
You need to define precisely what "shutdown my machine" means to you, as any answer will depend on that. Possibilities include sudo shutdown, sudo halt, pressing the power button, holding down the power button, and even pulling the plug out of the wall.
