comment How to choose an algorithm
If You’re Typing the Letters A-E-S Into Your Code You’re Doing It Wrong. That being said, you do need to know how to choose algorithms if you're designing protocols, but there's no miracle: you need to study the topic for a while before you can make design decisions.

comment Does using modulo (%) affect quality of randomness?
Read this. Forget about /dev/hwrng, that's none of your business as an application writer: just use /dev/urandom. (And don't use PHP's rand anywhere near cryptography.)
