comment Difference between “leihen”, “ausleihen”, and “sich ausleihen”
Well, technically "leihen" can mean both. Yes. But the sentence "Ich leihe das Video" is not ambiguous at all. It always means "to borrow". If it were to meant "lend", a dative object would have been applied.

comment “Willst du der Schülerin helfen?” why dative case “der Schülerin” but not “die Schülerin”?
There is no term "direct object" (or "indirect object", for that matter) in respect to German grammar. I'm afraid but you should forget about English grammar (or whichever language's grammar your supposition was based on) altogether.

@Mikaila If you have access to the Internet, then you can also look up grammar.

comment Does “so wie” mean “same as”?
If at all, it would be "... so einen leichten Rock, [...] wie Jana es trägt/anhat" or "so einen leichten Rock wie Jana's" — "...so einen Rock wie Jana" would compare "Rock" with "Jana". That said, I don't think it's an ellipse, and if it were, rather an ellipse for "... so wie Jana es tut".

All words indeed have some overlap—well, more or less. And though, they also have a clear distinct (predominant) meaning. If you had at least tell us why dictionaries didn't help, we could elaborate on the unclear part. But the question as it stands is off-topic for both being too broad and being general reference.

comment Is “Morgen” the same as “Vormittag”?
Be aware that the noun "Morgen" and the adverb "morgen" are actually two different words. Besides, "der Morgen" has indeed several meanings, and there's also "das Morgen".
