Q: What is the difference between English(US) and English(UK) ?
A: Differences between British English and American words (vocabulary) There are many British words which are different to American words. For example:

A lorry is a slimmer truck.
A lift is an elevator.
A fortnight is two weeks.
A chemist is a person who works in a drugstore.
A dual carriageway is a freeway.
Q: What is the difference between I want to be as proficient in English as a native speaker. and I want to be as proficient in English as native speakers. ?
A: "I want to be as proficient in English as a native speaker."

This sentence is stating that you wish to be as proficient in English as one native speaker in general.

"I want to be as proficient in English as native speakers."

This sentence states you wish to be as proficient in English as native speakers of the language overall.

The first sentence has a singular meaning while the second sentence is plural and includes a larger demographic of people (in this case it would be native English speakers as a whole rather than just one).

(I'm sorry if this is confusing at all. If you have any questions about my explanation I'll do my best to clear it up.) ^ ^
Q: What is the difference between The researches are in English. and These studies are written in English. ?
A: "The research is in English"

"researches" doesn't exist

"The research is in English"
"The research is written in English"

I think it's the same. Maybe "is in English" is more natural
Q: What is the difference between I've been good at English and I'm good at English ?
A: Actually I don't think "I've been good" means that you are not good anymore.

"I am good" is only referring to here and now.

"I've been good" means that you are good now, but it also means that you were good in the past and you continue to be good.
For example, you can have a conversation like this:

A: Hey, are you good at English?
B: What a stupid question. I've been good at English. I have been living in the US since I was a kid!

(You can also say "I am good at English," but in this situation, B wants to emphasize that they have been good at English for a long time.)

Translations of "English"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? How do you describe “workplace PUA”in English?
In Chinese, the word “PUA”we use is derived from “Pickup Artist”. We use this word in workplace to describe a boss who uses some techniques to psychological control an employee to work under bad conditions.
A: Just to be clear, "manipulative" does not imply illegality, and it does not imply being bossy. Based on your example (and reading a Baidu definition of 職場PUA - "职场PUA指的是职场中上级对下级的精神控制。来自恋爱的“泡学”,职场上只是换了对象,即领导精准打击员工的自信,以达到从精神上掌控员工的目的"), "psychological manipulator" is probably the closest you can get in English because it accurately describes "精神上掌控", which would be translated as "psychologically manipulate" or "psychologically control." There is no simple "one-expression" exact equivalent in English, so you will have to say something like "this boss psychologically manipulates his employees to get them to do what he wants."

PS Again, I am not saying that 職場PUAs do not exist in America - it is just that it has not risen to the level of having its own expression. The current focus on workplace abuses in the US is on sexual misconduct with the "Me Too" movement.

PS I found this website that describes a boss as "manipulative," and also gave 10 signs, many of which overlap with your definition of a 職場PUA:
