comment Is there a generally agreed short notation for "a points to b"
Whatever symbol you choose, define it before you use it first. "Let $a\to b$ denote that $a$ points to $b$."

comment Should I quote Wikipedia if I can't rephrase it?
Not citing is plagiarism whether you are writing a paper or not. Putting a quote in without putting the source is non-sensical.

comment What should I do if I cannot accept any of the hypotheses in a replicated experiment?
I didn't interpret "Academic Paper" as a publication; I thought that just referred to the Bachelor Thesis. Such a thesis is mainly to demonstrate that the student is capable of applying the skills they learned over the prior years in a larger setting. The goal is not to produce original publishable results.

NO. You need to say where it is from -- citing the source.

Quoting and citing is not plagiarism -- plagiarism is claiming others' work as your own. By quoting and citing you are not doing that.

How does one do research? Read cutting edge papers until you find one where you think "I can do better than that". Then do it.

Have you done any research? That, arguably, is the first step.
