Regarding the Un-Force user text-align in div,p tags in KePubs, will it be necessary to edit the books in order the patch to be effective?
No, it won't.

Ok,

I will patch my Kobo first and if it works right, and will try with my friend's.

Wish me luck.

Well. It's patched. Is far simpler than I expected. I have tried and the problem with the left-align chapter headers has been solved. I am laughing at myself and my fear of messing my device.

Can I install now the better hyphenation dictionary, right? It won't override the patches, right?

Damn it. I talked too soon.

I have the header issue solved, but now the left aligned setting does not work on 99% of my books. Even the off setting seems to be completely broken on some books.

What am I missing?

Sorry, no idea, as I don't use that patch (I edit my books to have justified text and set the alignment on my Kobos to OFF - this combination works perfectly for me).

Perhaps the patch really doesn't work correctly unless you edit your books. I thought it would, but I may have been wrong.

It makes sense, right?

Could it be that depending on the formatting of the book, the patch also overrides the whole text and not just the headers?

I am having this issue. It's irritating, specially when it messes up the letter spacing. Not all fonts seem affected, though.

It's any way to solve this, besides don't use it? In Spanish ligatures are very infrequent, son I don't mind losing them. Also, not all fonts have them.

Could this be the reason to no be enabled by default?

Try geometricPrecision instead of optimizeLegibility. If that doesn't improve the situation, your options are to go back to optimizeSpeed and lose ligatures or to use EPUB, which reportedly has better word spacing than KEPUB.

I tried with geometricPrecision and it’s more or less the same. So I have to choose between ligatures with messed letter spacing or no ligatures at all. It’s a pick your poison kind of situation. Both choices have compromises.

I will give a go to EPUB and see the differences.

You lose the rapid page turn feature, the image viewer, and some performance. In exchange you get access to Adobe page numbers and potentially better letter spacing.
