That's okay. Most of them were probably /dev or /sys, or secure files
(e.g. /etc/shadow). If you want, you can run:
sudo fdupes -nr /
and you'll be able to check more. Probably not worth it though.

It's not always obvious. I'll try to give a few tips, as you asked.
This is just a default file. You should leave it so everything will be
normal if you create another user.

This is apparently a temp file that was copied all over. You can delete
them all if you don't plan to reinstall.
I would just delete all old torrent files.
Obvious what these are.
Not sure. What is /home/steven/HOME
Normal. Just leave it.
These are from old kernels. Don't try to remove anything manually, but
you can do, e.g.:
sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.25-2-386
Don't actually run that command, it's just an example. But this shows
how you can remove an old kernel, if you're sure which is old!
Why are you running a CVS server?
You have two versions of Java, which may or may not be what you want.
I don't know. You didn't post df -Th, and I'm not sure how your
filesystem is laid out. The command I gave was only an example, as I
said. It's possible that for instance /etc is mounted inside of Documents.
