Translator's notes, prefaces, and introductions are numbered using Roman numerals so those pages can be safely cited without duplication or ambiguity. It is customary to number the primary text with Arabic numbers starting at 1. But as the front matter is clearly 'before' page 1, you have to make accommodations for it in your numbering scheme.

No. If the experiment is already completed, you would list what you did under the Materials and Methods part of your paper. You may editorialize at the end of the section, but it is best to propose detailed changes in the Discussion section. If your completed experiment did not offer the conclusion you were hoping for, that's where (Conclusion) you could add ...

The clarifier you want is "respectively." It's fine in running copy, or even as a caption, but clunks as a header. Comparison of egocentric camera against static camera and dense sensor placement, respectively For a headline, you might try emphasizing the idea that there are two comparisons with some redundancy: Comparisons of Egocentric Camera ...

Chris is right in saying that a formal tone/neutral voice minimizes individual stylistic differences, but I want to caution you that the difference between the writing of a native English speaker and a non-native speaker can sometimes be fairly obvious. It's in part because non-native speakers tend to have learned grammar and style in classes, whereas native ...

Based on the suggested improvements, I'm guessing this reads as ...
