  1. #1 -- You would use "the" only if you're referring to a street in general, the first one near where you are standing or sitting. You would use the first of the two sentences if the formal name of the street is First Street.

    #2 -- These two are not alike. I wouldn't use the second one. The first one is fine.

    #3 -- The first one is the more commonly used. The second is less commonly used and has a misspelling.

    #4 -- It's fine.

    #5 -- I'd use either 5 or 5-2, but I'd move "in English" closer to the verb so it makes better sense:
    Can you tell me in English where you live?

    #6 -- I take "across from" as a preposition. The phrase "across from the library" is adverbial since it tells where something is.

    #7 -- All are correct and polite, but have slightly different meanings. The first and third ones are used most often.
