Dear Bob,
I will attempt to answer your question about "Ace In The Hole."  Answering the rest
of them would be merely guess-work on my part.
 > Ace In The Hole (e.g. Bunk Johnson)
This pertains to playing a card game such as Poker or 21.  The ace card is the highest
single card in the deck.  If you have it and no one knows, it can be your "Ace In
The Hole."
In life, having something that you can count on that no one else knows you have can
be considered as having an "Ace In The Hole."
In the card game 21 or Black Jack, the card that the dealer has face down while dealing,
is called the "Hole Card.  If he/she has an ace, it is the best card he/she can have
and it is hidden from everyone else.
