Of course, you're correct. Now the proof : Meliana was Mayar, and she was wife of the Thingol and Luthien was their daughter. Beren was married with Luthien, so their grand daughter, Elwinga, had the Mayar blood too. Elwinga was married with Earendil, son of Tuor and Idril. Son of Earendil and Elwinga, Elros had also Mayar blood. He and his brother Elrond had blood of Noldor(Idril), Teleri(Elwinga) , Edain tribe of Beor (Elwinga, because of Beren) and Edain tribe of Hador(Tuor), (so they had roots in every important tribe in Beleriand) and of course Mayar (Elwinga because of Meliana). Elros was first king of Numenor but the dynasty of princes of Andunie also came from him. Elendil was from this dynasty, so he came from Elros and his sons also, Isildur and Anarion. Aragorn was heir of Isildur. Now you understand :D It was simple, wasn't it?
_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
Answer for your question: Valinor was the land where Valars, Mayars and Eldar lived and Valimar was city of the Valars.

Yes, No one (except Tolkien) really knows what color his hair is. I think it is blonde for a few reasons:

1. Thranduil's hair is blonde.
2. Elves are typically blonde
3. In Norse mythology the elves are blonde haired and Tolkien based his whole world on Norse myths.

They are elves and men, who died in the Battle of Dagorlad and I guess they have still magical powers, because their graves had been flooded or because of the lights in the marshes.

Goblins are original creatures. Orcs are half-elf-half-goblin, tortured by Morgoth to be his servants.

Orcs are larger stronger and endure better. Orcs were made in mockery of Elves just as trolls were to Ents. Goblins mainly tunnel and are smaller, more agile, and some think smarter too.

Correct! There is no difference at all. "Goblins" is an English word, wheras "orcs" is Old English the language used by Tolkien to represent Rohirric. In German both, "Goblins" and "Orcs" are "Orks" in Tolkien's tales.

Unless you ignored those;
in the movies, goblins are usually a bit smaller and hunched over most of the time,
and have big, yellow or greenish eyes with a small nose between their eyes. They mostly bear longer ears than Mordor orcs, and always
have a green skin. So there's definitely a difference. Other than that, they're also more agile and a better ability to climb things such as walls, pillars, or the mountains where they live.

By goblins, I mean those that are also known
as the Moria orcs.

Well, there are many races of goblins in the MOVIES, but Tolkien himself never really differenced orcs and goblins (or do you have a proof?) Most people believe Jackson's interpretation, because they can't find any difference, when they read the novels.

Tolkien never made them the same either.
I'm actually glad that Peter Jackson differed them from each other, it makes more sense
to me. They live up in the mountains and/or in caves, and they had done so for a long time
which would improve their climbing and agile abilities as they develop on further - and thus also those of their offsprings.
Their eyes should also be able to allow them to see better in the dark.

Did you ever see a Mordor orc climbing off a column with ease? Well, anyways, the differences in the movies make sense to me.

Well, there is a difference between the different orc tribes in their behavior and appearance and the main reason why they are created is always different, too. Orcs like Snaga, for example are different to orcs like Shagrat, and yes, the orcs in Moria are slightly different to others, but they are all still orcs. As a side note you said that Goblins are Moria orcs what underlines that Goblins are Orcs. Besides that I don't think that Tolkien ever discribed the orcs that were in Moria like monkeys who are climbing up and down the walls. Anyways the German translation is the same. Why should they give them the same translation, if they aren't the same creatures? And well, as I said before: The term goblin was used primarily in The Hobbit but also in The Lord of the Rings where it is used synonymously with "Orc". The different orc tribes are different to each other, yes, but "Goblin" is synonymously with "Orc". The biggest problem most people have is that Goblins are mostly mentioned in The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring and perhaps also in The Two Towers, but then is never mentioned again (Neither in the Silmarillion nor in any other (later) tales) That is why many people think that there is a difference between Orcs and Goblins and there is no memorable quote that is a proof for the difference between G&O.

The Olog-Hai, the Nazgul, and Morgoth and his servants are the only ones who can speak the pure form, and the Orcs speak a rougher form. BTW, did you know that when Tolkien created the Black Speech, he disliked the sounding of it so much that when a fan sent him a goblet with the Ring's inscription, he refused to drink out of it and only used it as an ashtray.

Random interesting add-on: A popular theory is that Gollum drowned Drogo and his wife, as there were signs of a struggle, and Gollum was looking for a Baggins. Also, he never got any further than the Brandywine River, which was the river they were boating on.

Interesting! People also think Drogo sunk the boat with his weight or his wife pushed him and he grabbed her pulling the both of them. If only Toilken had explained what really happened =[
