#3 is quite nice, with the better mint (Paoting)

#6 is a "restrike" (euphemism for fake)

For the sake of consistency you should probably use the reign name - so Chien Lung and Kao Tsung are the same, but Chien Lung is the regnal name, use Kuang Hsu instead of Te Tsung, etc.

yea i thought #6 was.

more interested ion the exact type of each, especially the last one

 

this looks like a japanese issue (japenese 1 numeral on reverse) but cant find anything on the reign

It's Chinese, towards the end of the Qing dynasty (about 1909). The denomination on the reverse is "one wen" (or one cash). The Japanese character for "sen" is different. Note this is a struck coin, not cast as were most of the older cash. This coin is listed as Y25 in Krause, under Empire Standard Unified coinage.
