    Default some phrasal verbs

    Please, I need specifications about the use of some phrasal verbs. I want to know if they are transitive or intransitive. And if the phrasal verb is a transitive one, I need to know if the word is separable (object in the middle, between verb and preposition), non-separable (object after) or accept both options
    get out of= avoid doing something
    get over with
    get round
    get round to
    get to
    get together
    get up= organise
    get up to= do something wrong
    give back
    give off= emit pollution
    give up on
    gloss over
    go after
    go against
    go along with
    go down with
    go for= attack
    go for= be atraccted to
    go for= choose
    go off= start to dislike
    go on about
    go through= read again
    go through with= persevere
    go up to
    go under
    grass up
    grow into
    grow out of
