Your coolant leaks strongly appear to be from the fittings, so they're not big deal. Take the upper radiator hose off, clean the crap out of the end of it and off the pipe, then put it back together with a better hose clamp on it. For your water pump leak, unbolt the spigot, install a new thermostat and thermostat gasket, bolt it back together, and fasten the lower radiator hose on with a better hose clamp.

Your axle problems are a little harder to figure out but it looks like they're leaking from the inboard end at the transmission seal. Probably. I'd consult a local Subaru shop on this one.

Your last leak is right on the headgasket and looks like a typical headgasket leak. However, there are a couple of other things that can sometimes cause oil to run down there, but usually the oil goes somewhere else. I'd look for oil higher on the engine that is running down that way. If you don't find any, it's headgasket time.
