comment Should I quote Wikipedia if I can't rephrase it?
Not citing is plagiarism whether you are writing a paper or not. Putting a quote in without putting the source is non-sensical.

comment Is it appropriate for a supervisor to suggest: “Why do a PhD, why not write a novel?”?
Please integrate the question into the text. At present they seem disconnected.

I didn't interpret "Academic Paper" as a publication; I thought that just referred to the Bachelor Thesis. Such a thesis is mainly to demonstrate that the student is capable of applying the skills they learned over the prior years in a larger setting. The goal is not to produce original publishable results.

Alternatively, honestly report the results obtained including the errors made/found.

NO. You need to say where it is from -- citing the source.

Quoting and citing is not plagiarism -- plagiarism is claiming others' work as your own. By quoting and citing you are not doing that.

comment A single definitive paper, or an initial manuscript and a followup?
If it is good work, don't submit to a low impact journal. No one will ever read it. If it is not good work, why submit at all?

comment Source code plagiarism detection tool that checks against online content
@Davidmh: Modern plagiarism tools (such as Moss) are not fooled by changing variable names.
