Those two sentences seem to be intended to mean the same thing, but the second one is the smoother sentence.

English
Sentence 1 means the same as both the other sentences in your last post. In the first post, you used "so as" in sentence 1-3. That's not correct phrasing. If you omit "so as" the sentence will be fine.

#1 is far better than #2. Usually, adverbs should be as close to the verb as possible, but not with a phrasal verb and not before the phrasal verb. For #3, I'd just skip "that" or "which" entirely! But if you need to use one, then use "that." ...

Yes, 4 and 6 have the same meaning, although it seems odd to have the abstract word "comments" be the subject of an action verb "made." It's the people who are making the comments, right? If the verb's action is in the past and it's over with, ...

#1 means that your brother was walking along the river. Placement of the participle phrase needs to be as close as possible to the word it's modifying. Therefore, only 2 and 3 work. However, if you want 1 to have similar meaning to 2 and 3, you should phrase it like this: ...
