What language levels would fillers, pronouns, anecdotes and repetition come under?
And what are some examples of things that would come under each language level?

Fillers, repetition, anecdotes are all discourse, pronouns are lexis and semantics.
Discourse = things you'd find in spoken language
Lexis and semantics = connotations, metaphors, euphemism
Pragmatics = Grice's maxims, pretty much everything relates to pragmatics
Grammar = sentence structures, noun phrases, head words, syntax
Phonetics = plosive sounds, alliteration, sibilance
Graphology = colours and fonts
