comment When to use these plain Te-Forms?
A "te-form" is a form ending in 〜て. It isn't a general term for asking/telling people what to do.

comment Is 動詞修飾副詞 a grammatical term?
@Leila It'd be great if you could include a little more information in your questions. What linguistics paper? What is the context of this sentence? It might be possible to answer this question without knowing these things, but including some context will make your questions easier to follow and answer.

comment Is 動詞修飾副詞 a grammatical term?
@Blavius It's one of the things adverbs do, but the core idea behind the traditional adverb category is 'modifier of other than noun', not 'modifier of verb'. In Japanese school grammar, adverbs are non-inflecting words that cannot be subjects and mainly modify inflecting words. See this chart.

comment Octopus kanji: 章魚 vs 蛸 vs 鮹
There's also a parsed version of BCCWJ available, and although parsers like this aren't perfect, we can look at the numbers they give: 676 タコ, 129 , 32 ダコ, 10 章魚, and 2 (If you haven't accepted the agreement, you may need to click the link again after doing so; go to the 基本 tab and click 書字形 to see the numbers for yourself.)
