BibTeX & "undefined control sequence"

Style files cannot be loaded via class option. They have to be loaded by \usepackage. So you have to use
  1. \documentclass[12pt]{book}
  2. \usepackage{aas_macros}

TeX Live 2019 nicefrac package

nicefrac is part of units (and that is available for TeX Live 2019). Both packages are out-dated. An alternative to nicefrac would be, e.g., xfrac. A recommended alternative to units would be siunitx.

Change section number to lettering Topic is solved

A good solution would depend on the class you are using and several other design decisions, e.g., how references to section, subsection and subsubsection should be. A very simple solution for the standard class article (but usually not for the KOMA-Script class scrartcl) would be: \documentclass{art...
