comment Lilypond incorrectly displaying natural signs in B Major
It's hard to tell from two measures of music, but perhaps the melody isn't actually in any major key, per se. Perhaps the piece is in another church mode such as Dorian or Lydian and you haven't identified the correct key signature to represent that mode (with as few accidentals as possible).

The point is that you should clearly show where the beats are. Using those "staggered" syncopated quarter notes obscures where the beats are.

comment 8 quarter notes in 4/4 time?! And how do I insert this into Guitar Pro?
There's a company called Steinberg that is working on a music notation software competitor to Sibelius and Finale. I follow the development, and there was recently a video blog by the lead developer who said that the new Steinberg product would, by default, prevent people notating things like what was done in Voice 2 in the example provided by the questioner, and would default to the kind of notation I use in my example.

comment 8 under clef and timing questions
Usually guitar sheet music doesn't use the 8 below the clef, because everybody knows it's supposed to be there for guitar. This clef symbol is most often used for the tenor vocal part in a piece of choral music, to distinguish it from the soprano and alto parts.

This is a pretty strange measure of music, I will grant you that. I would have notated this differently, but it is playable if you can decipher it. The notes in the middle voice should be written as single eighth notes and tied eighth notes. "Staggering" the three syncopated notes in the middle voice by writing them as quarter notes is against the conventions of proper notation.
