Spell check can be accessed from the top navigation bar on Outlook. After you click "Spell check," all misspelled words in your message body will be underlined in red. You can then left-click the word to get a pop-up list of corrections. The screenshot above was taken in Internet Explorer 9. I noticed that in Firefox, the Spell check feature is absent ...
As @w3d pointed out, is not an issue with Gmail configuration, but my browser's. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1 and the method to disable the spell checker (in order to avoid spell checking in Gmail composer) is deselecting the option in Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> "Check my spelling as I type".
As I type this answer on webapps.stackexchange.com, Firefox is providing the spell checking. It depends on the website. I suspect that any site that uses standard textarea tags will allow Firefox to spell-check it. Google Docs, on the other hand, uses its own custom spell checker. Right-click a misspelled word. Select "Languages" and make sure "English / ...
For the French language, Druide Antidote and Cordial are the best (spell + grammar + conjugation checkers) and have integration for Google Chrome. But they aren't free. Otherwise, Spell Checker for Chrome is a free extension that supports French. For Polish, you can try using the built-in spell checker in Chrome (you can even provide your own dictionary, ...
One way to have your "dictionary" include spellings from other languages is to translate the document into the language you desire. This will create a copy of the document in the language you choose.

In your Google Doc, go to Tools > Personal Dictionary and all of your spelling additions will be stored there. You will be able to add or remove custom words. To add a word, right click the underlined word and select Add to personal ...
I'm the developer. It supposed to work, but it's pretty buggy, on Chrome particularly. There is an open issue on GitHub about that and on ACE repo as well. As a workaround, you can use the "Light mode" (Settings>Advanced) which will replace the ACE editor by a textarea.
The easiest way is to change your proofing language is to set it under File menu. In this case you'll use the same document, without translation. You can pick the spelling checker of your choice (even dialects like Deutsch, Schweizerdeutsch) that Google supports.
It looks like you are being misled by the bolding that Google is showing in the results snippet. A search for peopleware quiet does return a few results which have quite in bold in the snippet text, but in most or all the cases the page for such a result also has quite in the page text. (An exception is when quiet only appears in the anchor text of a link ...
I don't know how well it works, but I found a link to this Userscript in this thread over on Google's support site. If nothing else, you can pick the script apart and find out how they did it.
No, I'm afraid except for adding words manually, there is no way to customize the dictionary used by Google Docs.
