comment What is the negative of 将会?
@Stan "他不曾会回来,所以也不将会离去" sounds fine in poetic contexts (such as lyrics) but is certainly considered ungrammatical by middle school teachers.

comment Is '去+verb' similar to 'to infinitives' in English?
I am native speaker. As Maroon's answer analyzed in detail, there are a few different meanings of 去 across your examples, but the general idea it summons when I hear this word is either 'go do something' with a sense of purpose and actually doing it as opposed to just reasoning, or 'then' which is similar to 而 like you said.

In English using 'to + infinitive' is mostly syntactic; in Chinese '去 + verb' is for semantics (weak causation: in order to/come down to/turn out to).

comment What is the origin of the slang term 6?
@user3306356 there are extended usages such as self-mockery or sarcasm which can be said to any word. I don't consider them 'completely different'. I didn't expand on those because the OP is asking for the origin.

comment How can I translate “To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting”?
I have no idea about the legal correctness but 涉及 seems to refer to people mentioned in the document instead of those to whom the document is presented, also the repetition of 位 in the first sentence bothers my ears. I would prefer the 2nd translation.
