Indeed!

FOLCRED: For him, a liquid and a fricative blend with sweet Italian!
ELROHIR: The Spanish pull the oars in this place, we hear. Now see him.
HALETH: He initially turns a machine for her.
???A???: Ugh, he dropped one! Slightly sibilant, and mildly unsettling!
ELURED: He enticed him, we hear (in slightly improper English).
HALDAR: Barnet youth loses one, but see him reform.
ELURIN: Ancient letter – elemental! Mix to find him.

It's HALETH, but it's H + LATHE (turned).

To drop one over here is to ... er ... release gas from ....

I think the remaining answers are Fastred and Haldad, but I can't figure out how they fit.

One of those is right.

'Dropped one' may only exist in British slang ....

I could only find 'drop a clanger', but it doesn't fit with Fastred.....

Sorry, I accidentally edited instead of quoting, so here it us again:

FOLCRED: For him, a liquid and a fricative blend with sweet Italian!
ELROHIR: The Spanish pull the oars in this place, we hear. Now see him.
HALETH: He initially turns a machine for her.
???A???: Ugh, he dropped one! Slightly sibilant, and mildly unsettling!
ELURED: He enticed him, we hear (in slightly improper English).
HALDAR: Barnet youth loses one, but see him reform.
ELURIN: Ancient letter – elemental! Mix to find him.

It's HALETH, but it's H + LATHE (turned = anagram indicator, but a lathe is also a turning machine).

To drop one over here is to ... er ... release gas from ....

Generally, yes. (In a normal, healthy person).

Past tense.

Farted + s (slightly sibilant), and shaken up, but only a little, (mildly unsettling).

Hwaet! We have heard of Fastred the Flatulent
And Folcred the Fragrant, twins tenacious
In battle bravery.

(Often sung in Meduseld).

We can't advise, or we'd know the answers.

Yes, but too few of options meet this particular criteria I've chosen. X is one of them.

What if you modify your criteria, or go for a less strict theme/pattern?

For example, I really wanted to fit all of Feanor's sons and nothing else into a password, but it wasn't possible, so I made it all the sons plus Feanor and Nerdanel. I'm sure you can come up with another great password if you relax the criteria, as Galadriel suggested.

I finally made it! This one also has a theme.

1. Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
2. He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
3. Rearrange the mythical monster for him
4. In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
5. Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
6. Elemental destruction? Turn it around for him

Enjoy!

Modified one of the clues slightly

1. Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
2. He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
3. Rearrange the mythical monster for him
4. In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
5. Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
6. Elemental destruction? Turn it around for him

Hint for 2: [It] is a popular thing on the interwebz and even beyond, and if you think/talk about [it], you lose [it].

The term could also be used for cunning maneuvers, and this is the way [he] played (and lost) [it].
