It works very well:

	   \immediate\write16{\jobname: Bonjour, PDF!}			%%%%
	\else		% for non-pdfTeX
	   \immediate\write16{¡Hola \jobname: DVI!}			%%%%
	%   \DeclareGraphicsExtensions{.eps,.ps}
	\immediate\write16{voranlen  ist \the\voranlen}
	\immediate\write16{zurucklen ist \the\zurucklen}
	\immediate\write\foo{\the\latexitdepth (Depth)}
	\immediate\write\foo{\the\latexitheight (Height)}
	\immediate\write\foo{\the\latexitheight (TotalHeight)}
	\immediate\write\foo{\the\fboxsep (fboxsep)}
	\immediate\write\foo{\the\fboxrule (fboxrule)}

Every text in any TeX file stands in some context. The header of a  
paragraph might be the argument of a \section{} call. So find the  
header file that #defines \section{}. In TeX speak it's a CLS or  
class file (formerly also known as a STY or style file). When you're  
not using some extra class the \section{} call is defined in  
article.cls, book.cls, and report.cls. The last two also define  
\chapter{}, because an article never has chapters. All three have the  
\paragraph{} call defined.

No, it's sufficient to check the LOG file. Often it's enough to read  
what "packages" (STY or CLS files) are used by your source file via

Yes, 10,000 or more. As in C, Fortran, Perl ...

LOG file(s). An important one is the <format>.log file: it names all  
STY, CLS, and other files that were used to create the xetex or  
xelatex FMT files. This is the "standard library" used.
