Is there a better way to switch between enumerated lists from a); b) ... to 1.; 2. ... and so on without the need of the tex hack \renewcommand{\labelenumi{alph | roman | arabic{enumi}} ) | . | .- | - } ???

The Customized Lists module contains some lists to do this. You can easily add moreby following the same pattern. I'm attaching my hacked version.

# The package enumitem provides user control over the layout of the three
# basic list environments: enumerate, itemize and description. It supersedes
# both enumerate and mdwlist (providing well-structured replacements for all
# their funtionality), and in addition provides functions to compute the
# layout of labels, and to ‘clone’ the standard environments, to create new
# environments with counters of their own.
#
# - fancy labels and fancy refs,
# - leftmargin, labelsep and labelwidth automatically set,
# - changes applied globally or only in one of the three
#   types or even in a single list (including topsep) by
#   means of a sort of "inheritance",
# - several description styles (which fix some bad
#   spacing, too),
# - starting value and counter resuming,
# - trivlists properly formatted,
# - control on page breaking
#
# Styling the basic lists is possible
#
# a) generally in the LaTeX preamble and
# b) per environment with optional arguments
#
# See enumitem.pdf for details and examples.
