The meaning of "Proposal" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Attached is a proposal put together, which details how the service could be implemented should management decide that this is an appropriate direction for the company.
mean?
A: To me, this sound a bit more like a bit of a grammar issue.
"Attached is a proposal put together, which details how the service could be implemented, should management decide that this is an appropriate direction for the company."

I'd phrase it like:
"Attatched is a proposal, which details how the service could be implemented, if management decides this is an appropriate direction for the company to take"

It essentially means that a proposal of some kind is attatched to whatever was sent, which goes in further detail about how they can take action in this "service" they're talking about, and if management believes it would fit well or be appropriate for the company.

Q: What is the difference between proposal and proposition ?

Proposal: used as a suggestion or offer to someone. Ex: There was a proposal send to your email.

Proposition: used as a opinion or judgment by stating to someone. Ex: I have a proposition for the group.
Q: What is the difference between I agreed to the proposal. and I consented to the proposal. ?
A: Consent and agree have similar meanings but they are used in different contexts.

consent - give permission, allowed something to happen, may not have the same opinion
agree - have the same opinion


Example:

I consented to the proposal even though I disagreed with it.
I consented to the proposal because I agree with them.
I agreed to the proposal. I also think it is the best way.
Q: What is the difference between proposal and proposition ?
A: The same in most contexts.

"Proposal" in some contexts can mean asking someone to get married. You would see that commonly as "propose," "proposed," but "proposition" is much rarer. "Jack's proposal" sounds more likely to be marriage than "Jack's proposition."

As someone else said, to proposition someone (e.g. "Jack propositioned the entire cheerleading squad") means to try to have sex with them. Usually this is casual sex, not within the context of a relationship. So in that context, proposal (marriage) and proposition (casual sex) can be very different! But those are just implications. "Jack's proposal was that we have sex," and "Jack propositioned me to marry him" are technically correct, just not the most common usage.

"Proposition" is used more in some formal contexts, such as politics. It's common for election ballots to have propositions on them: new laws that people decide if they want or not. A famous historical one is Proposition 8 (AKA Prop 8) which banned same-sex marriage in the state of California. (Thankfully overturned by Supreme Court decision, but that's another matter.) That's an example where you would see the word "proposition" used but not "proposal," if you want to search for articles about it and see the word in use.

Outside of matters of marriage/sex and legal terminology, however, the two are almost the same and usually interchangeable.

Translations of "Proposal"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I participated in ideal proposal,shooting, editing.

Though It was a first time to make a vidieo, I finished this project succesfully


(Can you correct this two sentences? My English teacher said it's bit unnatural.)
A:

I participated in (the) brainstorming, shooting, and editing (for this film project/of this video).
Although it was my first time to make a video, I finished this project successfully.

1. To be consistent make sure the verbs all have the same form. In this case, make sure they all have -ing.
2. You have to use "my" and "not" a in front of "first time".
3. I would prefer to write the last sentence as "I successfully finished/completed the project" or "I was able to complete/finish the project".
4. It is more natural to start a sentence with "Although" instead of "Though:
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? The proposal should be fully, where appropriate, to evaluate the risks. What’s the mean/nuance about“where”? I often saw “where” in the sentence but it’s not a place, why “where”?
A: The word “Where” is an adverb and a conjunction. When used as an adverb, the definiton of the word is in or to what place or position. Example; Where did my shoe go? Where would you like to meet?
Now, like the sentence you are asking about, where is used as a conjunction. When it is used, the word where could stand for “whereas” or “that.”
Example; His shoe is red, where the other boys shoe is yellow.
In that sentence, where is used as the word whereas.
In a sentence, you will have to think about which where they are talking about. Over time you will get used to it! :)
I am sorry if this is confusing, but hopefully this helped!
