1 suggests that the person was making a variety of noises that you want to be limited.
2 indicates that you want him to be silent, as does 3.
4 suggests that some noise is permitted, but not much. Usually it would be "Don't make too much noise."
5 sounds like the person was making various sound effects, and you want him to limit them to a few. "You can bark like a dog or mew like a cat, but don't moo, baa or cluck."
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
