  1. I think all of these sentences are correct. We would say a "chat room" instead of "chatting room", but calling it a chatting room is grammatically correct, if not common usage. You may use "at" or "in" in these situations. #8 is not wrong. To say you will perform in a contest or festival means you are a participant in the event. To say you will perform at the event mean you will entertain that event participants, so it depends on what you mean, in or at. Both are correct, but mean something slightly different.

  2. PS -- In 2, I would omit the word "to" -- it's not incorrect, but in today's normal usage (unfortunately), the preposition is usually left out!
