Hi
I think your moth is Agrius cingulata (Fabricius, 1775), the Pink-spotted hawkmoth.

#2 looks like one of the Buckeyes possibly a Mangrove Buckeye Junonia evarette.
#3 is one of the Swallowtails possibly a Polydamas Swallowtail Battus polydamas.
#5 is a Malachite Siproeta stelenes.
#6 is one of the Callisto species but there are several very similar looking ones that are endemic to Cuba.
#7 looks like one of the Sulpurs possibly a Cloudless Sulphur Phoebis sennae.
