My recommendation, as an NES but not a teacher, would be:
1. "from staying", as "for staying" suggests a reason why they should be forbidden from doing something else.
2. "if the need arises"
3. "in the years ahead"
4. "land to any..."
Personified means treated as though they were living persons.
Personalised includes "decorating" items such as your mobile phone, car or computer so that it is instantly recognisable as yours.
Hope this helps
