With serial the information can only travel in through one way and parallel means that there are many ways it can travel in.

Sorta like if you imagine a stadium. If it had only one entrance it would be serial and multiple entrances would make it parallel.

As for the five things you mentioned, I believe the first two are parrallel and I don't know enough about the rest to tell you.

However I may be wrong about everything I just said. ^_^
