I guess that most of these topics are, for example, explained in the FIDE-Albums. In addition to the Pronkin theme, also the Anti-Pronkin theme should be mentioned.
Concerning Alain's explanation of a "Schnoebelen promotion", I think it should be added: "... without having moved after the promotion".
