comment When is it appropriate to address a lady as 先生?
Well, I doubt it in Beijing. I'm still in college, and often visits other colleges or institutions, but seldom heard any teacher/professor called "先生" (male or female).

At lease not in Beijing. Teachers are always called "老师", even for college professors. They will not be called "先生". The only situation I hear this use of "先生" is in formal situations to show respect.

I don't think it would be used for teachers in primary schools, high schools or even normal colleges. As others have answered, it is used to refer knowledgable persons, but the use is now limited.

comment Should Chinese text be grid aligned in game dialogs?
@juckele Yes, they would better be dropped into the right boundary. However, I don't think it matters much in a game. The enumeration comma (I think your meena "、") follows this rule. Some punctuation can start a line, such as the opening quote(“).

I do not feel it strange, although I would add "的话" at the end.

And there's no P part after V in 法, at least in mandarin.
