1. Balrog now I’m forcing the clues to fit

Bulldog + …synonym for courage scrambled in the middle… sounds like Balrog

I think B might be BOLDOG instead, from the Lay of Leithian era.

For E, "bane of the young" plus Urwen saying it suggests EVIL BREATH, killer of... well, Urwen!

Thanks - but I only solved the easiest clues, I think, and only got the password because of G55's work. Still, here, according to the rules, is the next password:

1. Initially ruby red hot spam in a mélange shows directions.
2. An affectionate chap, this Bill.
3. Exclamation jars out here.
4. Nothing for Pony waiter who’s lost weight? See what a muddle there is here!
5. Oh Mr Branagh, protect us! Hear him! See him!
6. Gallant and brave, but confused, and with a liquid shift.
7. He’s all about this undergarment and its cup size!
8. Haradrim lad rises to the challenge. See the place within!
9. French betrayal without care meets a mixed-up boy for this chap.
