6.Dardanidae contra turres ac tecta domorum if you mean "turres" and "tecta," yes
7.culmina convellunt.his se,quando ultima cernunt, if you mean "culmina" and "convellunt," yes ("cernunt" is too far away from the other two to count!
assonance in l.7 and l.9
Which words do you consider as contributing to assonance?

and chiasmus in l.1 and l.9
