Explanation:
Bedder = acaballonador. Bedding = labor en caballones (los dos referente a la siembra)Ref. Simon & Schuster. Begma ? I agree it might be a typo. Maybe it is Phlegm (flema) since it refers to cough?
Suplicantemente is correct. BETADIST, BETAINV, BINOMDIST = agree with you that they might be programming instructions (but they are not Lotus or Excell, I Checked them),. They might mean instructions such as Distance of Beta Function, Inverse of Beta Function, Binomial Distribution, BUT it is a big guess. Bike way = via para bicicletas (They have them in Amsterdam & Copenhagen). Birthstone = piedra semipreciosas(ópalo, rubí, esmeralda, etc) que popularmente son asignadas al mes de nacimiento. Bitbender, Bitcell don´t have any idea. Hope it helps in some way.

Explanation:
Just a hint,(no dictionaries):
Betadist: distancia (relativa) a Beta
Betainv: inverso a Beta
Binomdist: distancia binominal
Bitbender: sugiere algo con los 'bits', como 'hacerlos encajar' o comprimir.
Bitcel: aparenta un 'espacio' para el bit. (Just a shot, looks like sofware engineering language). On the rest, I agree with the colleague 'leomar'.
Luck!

BIKEWAY=carril bici; BESEECHINGLY=suplicando


Explanation:
Bikeways are becoming "in" in some Spanish towns and cities. We call them "carriles bici".

An option for "beseechingly", if sentence structure allows it, would be to use the gerund "suplicando". Otherwise, try "de manera implorante".

Hope it helps in some way.
