    1)It’s two years since I last saw him (OR I saw him last?) Either one is correct; be sure to put a period at the end of the sentence.

    How long is it since you last saw him?
    OK

    2) I last saw him two years ago. OK; and yes, "last" belongs right where you put it.

    3) How long ago did you last see him?
    I haven’t been here for a long time. (= It’s a long time since I last was here)
    All are OK.

    4) I haven’t been here long. OK

    I arrived a short time ago. Don't use the second sentence here.

    I’ve been looking through all my sports equipment all morning, ) but I haven’t found my swimming trunks yet.

    5) I’ve been thinking about selling my old computer games for a long time, but I haven’t decided yet. OK
