Q: "How should I decide among Approvals, Workflow, Process Builder, Flow, and Apex Triggers?"

A: A good guideline is "use the simplest tool that gets the job done."

Salesforce has a comparison table, but I don't think it's well-executed. I humbly recommend my own, which has more information and is organized from simple-to-complex:
