Coax a city state to produce a resource?
Many of my settlements and some city states are requesting sugar be connected to my trade network. It looks like there's only one sugar tile on the whole map and it's within a city state with whom I am allies, but they are apparently not doing anything with that resource. Is there anything I can do to help or coax them to produce sugar or will I have to conquer them?
(This is in the tutorial game.)
Well, as you are an ally you can freely enter their territory. So you could march in and develop the resource for them.
Develop others' resources
I wasn't aware that I was allowed to build resource development structures outside my own territory. I'll have to try that if indeed that's possible.
Hmm. I'm having second thoughts myself now. Have I actually done this or am I confusing it with something else?

gift them a worker.
also, you can repair improvements in allied territory
Non-combat units cannot be gifted.
Seems like an inane restriction.
I think workers should be allowed to develop any improvement anywhere.
If the owner doesn't like the development they can express that or even declare war and kill the worker.
This might be a good way to gain some influence with a CS or another civ.
We've been bemoaning a lack of ways to gain +ve influence.
That might be taking things too far. Could I go into someone's territory, go to a silver mine and redevelop his mine to a trading post, thus killing the luxury resource?
