what database and what version? Do you have rights to update and delete but not select for that table?

comment Do data types go into a Relational Data Model (RDM)?
Most people like the lines between tables to not cross. takes more work but even a large diagram can be a thing of beauty if you take the time.

comment Oracle: Create a hidden user for RMAN backups only
You should ask a new question about how to do RMAN backups complete with the details of what storage you have available to back up, how big is the database, what is the expectation for loss of data (ie unwilling to loose more than an hour of data entry implies taking backup and moving logs off the server every hour)

comment how to prevent any update to my database before a exp operation?
well you could do that for every user except SYS, SYSDBA but then existing sessions would still continue to run and someone could still log on who was in the ORA_DBA group (windows OS) and connect as sys, and jobs would still run..

comment migration of oracle xe 10 to xe 11 fails with wrong paths used in the import
I don't suppose just exporting or datapumping the schemas you are interested in rather than a full export will work?

comment EAV table question
It all depends.... how many entries, your budget for hardware and software or is this a thought experiment? Either way the amount of space a single table occupies versus several tables is not a determining factor in the speed of a query.

@roukaya from your answer you know how to shutdown and restart the database. Did this solve your problem?
