I like the comprehensive primer guidelines, chapeau !
But on puzzle 3.5 I could use a nudge...

Spoiler removed

But then I cannot find anything useful, so I guess I am on the wrong track here...

You are exactly right and the apostrophe plus the length of some words should help you out.

Found it, but exactly both things lead me astray for a while... I censored a  certain word too quickly.  Angelic
After that hurdle I suspected the other one would give me some formatting problems, but luckily that was not the case !

I feel very silly, but I have absolutely no clue how to proceed on this one. Can I get a nudge in the right direction?

If you find the apostrophe and see what appears immediately after it, it's quite easy to guess what's usually seen in that place. That should help decide how the code is defined and start you on the solve. It's not too hard once broken up correctly.
