This simply means that the font  (lmodern roman) 
you chose doesn't have bold small caps, so it 
substituted normal shape instead.

This one says that the font you chose (lmodern 
sans) doesn't have small caps either, and so 
roman was substituted here.

These are not problems you can fix since the 
fonts simply don't have the relevant shapes.

This certainly isn't the cause, although I'm not 
sure why you want this to be OT1 as opposed to T1 
(and for consistency presumably this should be 
lmss instead of cmss.  But perhaps others can say 
more about this.

Some of this is covered in the LaTeX Companion in 
Chap. 7 although it doesn't specifically address 
the error in a way that would be helpful.
