comment less command and syntax highlighting
@user1147688: If you carefully read Felix's answer, the GNU source-highlight is an external program, and the integration with less is very loose. It's not less that does the highlighting; but Vim indeed has this capability built-in.

comment Remap Up and Down arrows to gj-gk in vim input mode without using <c-o>?
The <SID> just makes the mappings local; you could have used <Plug>, too. And see :h :map-expr for details.

Actually, the cursor also moves the first time, just the screen isn't updated until another cursor move or char insertion. I've added a workaround to my answer.

comment Replace string with another string in vi editor
That's very basic vi / Vim functionality, covered by most tutorials on the web. Also, learn how to look up commands and navigate the built-in :help; it is comprehensive and offers many tips. You won't learn Vim as fast as other editors, but if you commit to continuous learning, it'll prove a very powerful and efficient editor.
