Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Here you go ...

1. At last! A rustic thinks a queen among elves as fair as one of these.
2. A third of this is what we need Ė due to answer number five? Or at Bombadilís - for cut knees, perhaps?
3. Streaming things for which this housekeeper holds the key? Thatís a first!
4. Wait a second. This is why you might need an understudy in a Shakespearean tragedy. Confused, and flowery.
5. Horse with highlights is confused in shining Sindarin. Take nought from the third?
6. Itís both long and longed for Ė by a dwarf. Go fourth.

#1 and #6 are giving me Galadriel vibes. #1 sounds like Sam's speech to Faramir (but which of the similes?), and #6 sounds like the lock she gives to Gimli (but again, by what synonym? Lock? Hair? Strand? Tress?).

Any will do fine for 6.

For 1, the answer is indeed in one of the similes.
