    #4 Would be incorrect, just go on a Lotr wiki and find out, or read the books, Silmarillion is great, personal favourite though for me is “Children of Húrin”.
    but on to the subject; elves can in spirit never die, only their physical forms.
    Tolkien described it as the “Fëa and hröa”, soul, and body (respectively), and while the body “hröa” can die, the soul (fëa) can not, and while the souls of men who died go on beyond Earth for reasons J.R.R. Tolkien couldn’t place his finger on, elven souls can’t leave Earth, they are bound to the Earth forever, so what happens to elven souls is that they go to the Undying Lands and is eventually ‘reborn’ (in a sense), they go to the halls of Mandos for judgement, and eventually gets their physical form back, and gets to live on in Valinor, the Undying Lands where the angelical Ainur resides.

      WOW, I respect your desire to research such menial / Trivial things. Think how much better you would feel if you invested the same amount of time and effort into getting laid. (Just sayin’)
