    sentences 1 and 2 are both correct. adverb can come in various places.

    between 3 and 4, only 4 is correct.

    No idea about the rests

    In my opinion, I think not 1 but 2 is correct because adverbial phrases related to 'time' are usually located in the end of sentences.

    And for 5 and 6, 'He is a hansome,tall,dark guy. You don't need to use 'and' among those adjectives because they are different types.

    Note these....

    a darling young man , a small round oak table, a dirty old brown car

    an adventurous young man(*an adventurous and young man: different type of adjective)

    a beautiful and brave guy( * a beautiful brave guy: same type of adjective)

    and I highly recommed you to search for some examples relavant to your question in threads here.

    I hope these help! ^.^
