I found this link to be helpful:
http://www.pcgamer.com/best-skyrim-mods/

However, they do mention of potential compatibility issues, so I'm hoping there's a recommended list of mods that are not only covering every aspect of the game, but are compatible with each other.
I may control all the elements, but I sure can't control all the people in this world... at least, not without fear.

Well, that was an awfully simple answer. What are you even talking about?

Google "Skyrim step". Sometimes things are just that simple.

I enjoy the unofficial patch obviously as well as immersive patrols, immersive citizens, immersive armors, and of course skyrim script extender (SKSE)

A new favorite of mine as well is mortal enemies, which makes it so you and AI can't spin the camera around mid-swing. Making dodging an actual viable option. I use that with the TK dodge and it has greatly improved the feel of combat in this game.
You'll also need XP32 skeleton and FNIS (there's a specific tick option in FNIS for TK dodge to make it work in 3rd person)

Race compatibility is pretty necessary for any race mods, skytweak is pretty nice, and climates of tamriel.

I also like phendrix magic, legacy of the dragonborn (massive AMAZING mod!), daedric artifacts improved: Vanilla version on steam, Thunderchild on Nexus, additem menu V2 and finally infinite shouts, which adds a necklace that gives you 0 shout time for all shouts. Very fun lol

I also really like The Uchiha Clan on nexus which goes with the Naruto overhaul mod only available on steam. though the mod is based on Naruto obviously, regardless if you don't like the anime. I fully recommend it! The "Jutsus" or spells added by the game actually fit relatively well in the game imo. It also adds a stone in the jutsu master hideout where you can convert dragon souls into perk points. The Uchiha Clan mod on Nexus allows you to save your regular eyes, choose 1 of 5 paths which unlock unique abilities as you kill more and more people. I won't spoil anymore but it's awesome :). You can also resort to straight up buying the spells if you don't follow that specific path

Good choices. I think it's also a good choice to start with compatibility and bug fix patches.

If you aren't already using it - LOOT (Load Order Optimization Tool) Great resource that greatly cuts down on conflicts created by improper load order.

Wrye Bash - not the simplest tool to use, but there are plenty of tutorials available. This is the tool used to create the often mentioned "Bashed Patch" that fixes conflicts.

Wrye Bash can't fix everything though - mods that put buildings in the same world space, for example, usually can't be bashed into working together. A bashed patch in that case basically disables one of the buildings so you can use the other. Simpler to just uninstall the conflicting mod. IF there are other items in that mod that you want to use and they don't conflict with other things, the bashed patch might be worth trying.
Hah! You kids these days got it easy. I started playing video games with PONG. Now THAT was a video game! And get off my lawn!
