    1. On the way home I met my old friend.

    What is the part of speech of 'home'?
    Is it an adverb? Then, what does 'home' modify? Yes, all that is adverbial, including "home" -- modifying the verb "met." The adverb phrase/words are telling when and where "met" happened.

    2. Probably tomorrow he'll come back.
    3. Maybe tomorrow he'll come back.

    What is the difference between 'probably' and 'maybe'?
    no difference

    4. He got there in safety.
    5. He got there with safety.

    Which one is right between #4 and #5?
    Do #2 and #3 have different meaning?
    Neither 4 nor 5 is correct. You should say, "He got there safely." Sentences 2 and 3 have the same meaning.

    6. He walked through the shallow river with care/ withour care.
    (Is this sentence grammatical?)
    It'd be better to say, "He walked through the shallow river carefully." (or "carelessly")
