Maybe that's the new question: did Elwing know Beorian, and if so, then how.

If I remember correctly, both Earendil and Elwing were kids when their respective kingdoms fell and they were sped away...

The published Sil sidesteps the issue as Earendil "called aloud in many tongues, both of Elves and Men" without specifying the tongues, and for grammar to work just one tongue of Men would suffice -...

The latter. That is the correct meaning of the first line.

The umbrella line is a separate entity, as are the rest. There is an overlying connection, but each line has a separate "mini-answer".

10. Aragorn?

13. The line, of course, belongs to the Great Goblin. Beat them, slash them, bite them, gnash them!
