Quick answer, as I'm supposed to be cleaning the kitchen(!):

I use Alt-Tab to switch between docs/pdfs/websites, etc.

You could resize the world doc and the pdf each to half the width of the screen, so they're side-by-side.

No problem. Switching on "use small icons" also makes it look closer to the old view.

Does playing with the options mentioned on this page help? I guess you want to change "Taskbar buttons" to "Never combine", which is how I like it as well.

This is a feature of Windows 7 (and 8) rather than with Office.

Personally, I hover over the icon and select the file I want, I find this quite convenient, but you can also flick between windows by pressing the Windows key and Tab on the keyboard.

In Excel you can pin them to together by clicking, holding and shaking one next to other , not sure if it works in Word too.

It doesn't work for me. It does it in excel as well.

It is probably the version of Windows rather than office which has changed it . Restore down each window then take one , click on one holding the mouse down and bring alongside the other.
