Various insects for id

I've been taking advantage of the long evenings, trying to identify various insects I've photographed over the last few years.

I'd be grateful for any hints that will point me in the right direction on these...

c06b May Berkshire (heathland) c. 8mm
e10b June Central Berkshire, larger beetle c. 15mm
f10b May NE Greece, body c. 30mm
h44 September, Romania (Danube Delta)
h66a July, Central Berkshire, c. 20mm

2- Coleoptera... Sorry, I know very little about this group...
3- Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae... I have no idea!
4- Orthoptera, Acrididae, Acrida ungarica.
5- Diptera, Syrphidae, Vollucella pellucens?

Ciao!!
