Let me be a little more precise with exactly why a single Lightning Bolt effect should never kill Jace, the Mind Sculptor the turn it is played if Jace's owner doesn't want it to.

Assuming the Planeswalker was cast normally, the person who cast it is active player. Assuming nothing triggered off of the Planeswalker entering the stack will be empty and Loyalty abilities can be activated. Players can only take actions when they have priority. After a spell or ability resolves active player receives priority. This means the loyalty ability will be activated before the opponent can do anything.

Adding (or removing) loyalty counters is a cost of the ability and will happen while the ability is being activated and can not be responded to. Once the ability is on the stack you can respond with Lightning Bolt, but the counters will already be on them.

A permanent changing types does not cause it to enter the battlefield again. A vehicle turning from an artifact into an artifact creature will not trigger any ETB effects.

Paradise Mantle is a good way to tap down your Stonybrook Schoolmaster.

Choosing a target is part of activating the ability of Helm of Possession and the Grave Pact trigger is going to go on the stack above the helm activation. This means that they will know what creature you are trying to steal and sacrifice it for the helm activation to fizzle.

Since they enter the battlefield at the same time Essence of the Wild is not on the battlefield AS they enter and therefore can not affect them. They will enter as 0/0s and die to SBAs.

Fling is the thing doing the damage, not the creature you sacrificed to it. This means that any abilities that creature had do not apply to the fling damage.

Also a small detail, lifelink is not a trigger. It doesn't use the stack like triggers do and can save you from lethal damage dealt to you in combat if you also had a creature with lifelink deal damage at the same time.
