Synonyms of "Guy" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between the guy said... and the guy did say ?
A: "The guy said that he would do it."
^ Here, you're just telling about the guy and what he said

"The guy did say that he would do it."
^ Here, you're pointing out the fact that he actually said he would do something.

"Did that guy do what I asked him to?"
"He said he would."
^ This is a very casual response

"Did that guy do what I asked him to?"
"He did say he would."
^ It sounds like you were suspicious about him not doing what he was supposed to.
-Adding the 'did' makes it sound like you're using the sentence as proof for something.
Q: What is the difference between Why don't you think he is a nice guy? and why do you not think he is a nice guy? ?
A: Yes, in the examples you gave, those sentences have different meanings with one being a recommendation and the other just asking for information. I see the first example you gave as having the same meaning because it doesn't seem normal to recommend someone to think something about a person's personality. I'll give you one more example where the 2 sentences would have the same meaning and one example where they have different meanings and I'll try to use the verb 'think' in both examples.
Example 1 (same meaning): Why don't you think my idea is good? Why do you not think my idea is good? (both of these statements are asking for information. They're not really making a recommendation.
Example 2: Why don't you think about applying to a different university? (This sentence could be understood as giving a recommendation or just as asking for someone's opinion).
Why do you not think about applying to another university? (This question is just asking for information, but not really giving a recommendation).
Ok. I hope that helps. :)
Q: What is the difference between guy and boy ?
A: Boy= Usually a young male under 18 years old

Q: What is the difference between I'm looking to joining you guys! and I'm looking forward to joining you guys! ?
A: "I'm looking to join you guys" = "I want to join you guys"

"I'm looking forward to joining you guys" =
"I'm glad you've allowed me to join you, and I will soon"
Q: What is the difference between good guys and homies ?
A: Good guys used like it is here means allies. You usually only see this use in action movies where there are good guys (allies to the heroes) and bad guys (people helping the villians). This is just because there's not much use for it in daily life. It's not very often that I get into a gun fight and have to tell the good guys from the bad.

Homies is a very casual word that actually is used outside of movies pretty commonly. Generally it means friends.

The difference between these two depends on the context of the movie.
