Re: bios or uefi

Termy these work as couples uefi-gpt and bios-mbr.

Re: low disk space filesystem on LM19.2

If var/log is so big then something malfunctios and creates big logs. Or it's a log bug. You can delete but sooner or later will grow again.
Check also timeshift images.

Re: Junk Food. I am an addict.

Imagine you are a pc. With junk food you multiply the dust in you.
Since you are aware of the problem I guess you can stop it again.

Re: Can I Safely Resize the Linux Mint Partition?

No, you cannot do it safely and even if you do it and the system looks to work ok on the way you may meet corrupted files or functions. I've been there.
