comment Introducing a (new) test method to a team
looks like you're in a .NET shop. Do you have access to Team Foundation Server? I know it can handle a lot of what you're looking for, i.e. continuous integration with automated UI and unit tests. I'm assuming there is already a content management / versioning system implemented (if not, TFS can do that, too). If you do not have TFS, I would still recommend implementing automated UI and unit tests to cover system-critical and boundary scenarios. Selenium is a popular product for automated UI testing in HTML5 environments, but I do not have experience implementing it.

comment Algorithm to calculate trajectories from vector field
I think that this question would be better suited for StackOverflow. You mention that "Stackexchange" doesn't seem to handle the topic, but quoting the StackOverflow FAQ, "We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers … a software algorithm … then you’re in the right place to ask your question!" Either way, I hope you find what you need.

comment We are moving an Access based corporate front-end into a Web-based App
There seem to be a lot of questions around here in the realm of "what is the best architecture/technical solution for me?" without providing very much detail. While I think that providing a fully comprehensive understanding of the organization is nearly impossible, I think you did a good job of providing important details.

comment How to adopt scrum agile methodology for a small .Net team
The description of your organization lacks details that would assist in determining if Scrum is a suitable management methodology for you. Scrum requires a backlog of user stories, i.e. tasks (take a look at INVEST). Also, Scrum is geared towards iterative releases of the product (as opposed to a single release like a waterfall model). For more information on implementing Scrum, see this thread in Project Management

comment What is an “implementation plan”?
+1 for "This depends a lot on the size of your project, and what exactly you are implementing." There is no single template for all projects. It also depends on where other plans pick-up and leave off. For example, #8 and #9 might be in a master test plan, and some other items could be in a more general project plan. It really depends on what information would be useful if documented.

comment Can testers peer review the developers' design and code?
Thank you for the very thorough and thoughtful response. You provided more feedback and personal experience than I had originally hoped to receive, and I am very thankful that you took the time to contribute to the community.
