I am not sure there exists any one person who can grant you permission to use screen shots, but someone with more clue than I have may be able to clear this up with you. Regarding packages, copyright rests with the package authors, so use the maintainer() function to find out who you need to ask for that permission regarding each package you plan to refer to. Note that you should read the license associated with each element of the software that you will "quote" (including screen shots), and those licenses are indicated in the help files. You may find your answers there with no further emails at all, but you might need legal assistance to interpret the language. 

Do note that you really need to learn how to use the mailing list if you want recipients here to get your message. Read the Posting Guide, which warns you to send your email as plain text (not HTML formatted), and attachments are restricted to a very limited set of formats. Given the emails that you sent, if someone COULD grant you permission to show images, they did not receive any images to review so they currently don't know what you are talking about. 
Sent from my phone. Please excuse my brevity.
