These seem like a lot of questions, in essence they develop the background to the information you will actually put in your statement and answers to any questions. Answering these questions keep you on track to keeping your personal statement PERSONAL. Look for common denominators in the answers you have written, this may help formulate a theme or connection you can build into your personal statement.
The personal statement is also a great place to explain more serious problems, like less_than_ideal grades or test scores. Don't be afraid to write something like, "I don't test well" in the statement. As long as you can provide a good reason for you app's problems, it's okay to address them directly. You won't be able to hide it from admissions officers anyway, so providing a reason for problems is always preferable to ignoring them.
