All these expressions are informal and have the same meanings.
These expressions are not really polite nor rude either. They can be used only among close friends. You can learn diplomatic/formal/respectful/polite/kind expressions in any textbooks. So I will try informal expressions first unless you want otherwise.
Can you really remember them all? Then please try to recite them loud. And also write them all by heart until you can do it with ease.
We should understand the nature of our mind. Structural analysis is knowledge--conscious effort of understanding. You don't need this for now unless you want to become an academic linguist, right? What you want now is automatic, unconscious yet practical fluency of Japanese--different kind of knowledge. In order to gain this ability, FORGET GRAMMAR. JUST MEMORIZE LIKE A BABY.

I have a good idea about mastering Japanese(Immersion Method). It is efficient and reasonable. It doesn't have to be painstaking if we are TRULY smart. I was stupid with my English study and I have learnt it through its failure. I will let you know more little by little.
2.ALWAYS MEMORIZE!!--Never think about grammatical analysis for now. We can do it at times only to understand the structure of the language, NOT to acquire the virtual ability of its fluent speaker.
If you can agree with me, let's start from a basic level. Otherwise please feel free to ask me if you have any open question/disagreement.
Hiragana(平仮名) and katakana(片仮名) are easy but kanji(漢字) is not. Kanjis are originally pictographs(象形文字). Several bushu(部首) parts are assembled into a kanji and each bushu has its own meaning as a unit. Thus the various parts blend into a harmonious whole as a kanji to create a new meaning. It is a "very efficient and effective way" to master kanjis "by memorizing about 200 bushus first." Actually 100 busshus are good enough for daily life unless you want to become a kanji scholar. You will never regret if you act on my advice. And also you can save a lot of time. However Most Japanese teachers are so stupid that they don't adopt this learning method at their own kanji class. Beware of it!

****P.S. Learn how to take a joke, and identify the intent of the people which you are talking to.

Don't make personal issues site issues, if you take off your clothes on skype or in real life and bicker about it on Bwamu...guess what, it's a personal issue. Grow up.
