    Welcome to the forum, katieq.
    In yiur examples, I would say that #1 and #4 are correct.
    In #1, "enter" means to begin a new phase in a process. In #4, "enter into" signifies joining in or participating in something.
    The word "enter" can be used in many different ways. You can go to OneLook Dictionary Search and find many nuances.
