1 and 2 are the same, yes. 3 & 5 are OK, but 4 & 6 are not correct. It'd be better to write this: After heavy rains, the playground was muddy. and After hours of heavy rain, the playground is muddy now.

No, 2 is not OK!! The placement of the adverb matters. 4 is not incorrect, but it's not a pattern that's used much.
