  1. 1, 2, and 3 all mean about the same thing, yes.

    In 4, "make it at ten" seems to mean "plan to meet at ten o'clock."

    6 and 6-1 mean the same thing, yes, but it would be smoother if you reverse the first two words: He finally made it. He finally succeeded. The word "finally" is an adverb modifying the verb, so it should be as close to the verb as possible.

    7 and 8 are almost the same. If you change "in" to "into" in #7, they'll be the same.
