    See above. You don't need any of your overly wordy suggestions. If your aunt says "Please come and meet me halfway", the fact that she wants you to then escort her for the rest of the journey is implied.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have a question. What would you write " half way 'to' or 'through' the way, if you had to? I mean which one is correct?

    Neither one is correct with "the way".

    Meet me halfway to my destination.
    Meet me halfway through my journey.
