I have read the book, twice. Iam just not so good at understanding expecially when theres more to the means...

All those are basic comprehension questions, not taxing interpretation (OK, the last one's different: 'name this feature', which is "prolepsis"). You just have to sit down with the book and work through the list, copying out the relevant information. Unfortunately, nobody will answer them for you because this is a really, really boring thing to do.
Do the numbers you give refer to page/line in a particular edition?

erm...do your own homework
In what way was dido's "fortune" like that of aeneas (46.9)?
They were both forced out of their homeland and built new cities...there I helped you with one. Now go and read the book ok.
