    Of course they do.
    But again, no one here is going to write a whole text-book chapter for you. Go out and buy one. A dictionary might also help. You'll find that two of these words are verbs, and two adverbs, so there's no way they can be the same.

    I'll explain simply. You need to read about these things first in books, and try to understand them before you ask here. We don't have time to answer complex extensive questions. That is what grammar books are for. If you have a specific question that you don't understand, and which the book doesn't explain, ask here.

    Do you understand what I am saying? Do you understand why no one can answer your question? If you don't understand, I will try again.

    It's not going to get any easier unless you make some effort yourself.

    To begin with, you could look up the words in a Lithuanian-English dictionary, and then try using them in simple sentences. If you post the sentences here, we can help you.

    You don't need to worry about any difference between "may" and "might". For practical everyday English there is no difference.
