comment “俺が一番” vs “俺が最高”
If it helps any, the kanji means the most coupled with any other kanji that has a degree of measure you can get an idea of how it can be used. 最小 = the minimum 最後 = the final 最初 = the first etc. With 一番, by replacing the 一 (1) you can do 三番 = third 五番 = fifth and so forth.

comment What does それに伴い at the start of a sentence mean?
I also would encapsulate it's various meanings to "Accordingly." This site link is a great tool for translations. What you will find is that it's not a dictionary by any means, but it's a translation site which gives meanings based on the context of the sentence.
