The meaning of "Hi" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Hi, could anyone tell me the meaning of the phrase which highlighted in this passage ?
Thanks !! mean?
A: okay so this line is talking about the interior decor.
"The luxurious Parisian notes" refer to the parts of the decor that are Parisian (of or from Paris) whether it be vases, paintings, lamps, etc. The second part is a little more ambiguous. "offer themselves to a fiercely feminine interior." basically means that the Parisian parts are paired with the extremely feminine interior. I would understand (from this sentence) that the Parisian parts of the design pair very well with the feminine design.

Q: What is the difference between Hello and Hi ?
A: Hi is more informal than Hello.

You can say:
Good day or good evening - formal
Hello - neutral
Hi - slightly informal
Hey - very informal

US English is pretty informal, so we rarely say "good day" or "good evening". You can say "hello" to almost anyone.
You can say "hi" to anyone except someone who is very superior. (I would say "hi" to my boss, but not to the President.)
You can say "hey" to a friend.

("Good morning" and "good evening" are not as formal as "good day" or "good evening".)
Q: What is the difference between Hi! I'm John! and Hello! I'm John! ?
A: They mean the same thing but the word hi is used more casually, like if you are taking to s friend or family member. Hello is more often used professionally, like when applying for a job, greying a new client, so on. It does not matter which one you use. Either one can be used anytime.

Other questions about "Hi"

Q: Hi, could someone explain to me why " 's " is placed at the end of the word friend?
This is the sentence:
The man who came was a friend of my father’s
A: it's a very beautiful question actually
lemme go in a little bit deeper
we have 3 genitive forms in english:
1. a friend of my father
2. a friend of my father's
3. my father's friend
we can't really see the difference here but in another example:
1. a picture of my father
2. a picture of my father's
3. my father's picture
1) means my father is IN the picture
2) means the pic BELONGS TO my father
3) could mean both
so you can also say 'a friend of my father'
it'll mean the same thing in this example, but not always, as you can see at the example with the word 'picture'

Q: Hi! I've been listening lately an "expression...?" that I'd never heard before and I don't really know what does it mean or when it's used... I can't find any info on the net either because I don't know exactly how to look it up. The thing is, when is "Not my mother telling me to pick my brother up" used and what does it exactly mean?
A: Ayyyy yes ok. I understand. This is a new slang phrase / meme phrase. It a way of saying

“Something happened, it is difficult to believe that this happened, so I am going to pretend it didn’t happen”

You can imagine it is a sarcastic answer to someone asking “what’s up?”

Friend: “What’s up?”

Me: “Not my bicycle getting stolen while I was inside the store for one minute”

Which would mean:yes my bicycle was stolen and I am sarcastically joking, pretending it did not happen.

Q: Hi!! 😊😊 Could you help me with the meaning of this sentence??

“Please, God . . .” I trail off. It’s all the prayer I can manage.

Does it means that he don't know how to pray or that I can't pray right know because he is not in the mood?
Thank you very much!!!
A: It is because he is not in the mood I guess, it depends on the context.
“I can manage” means “it’s all I can do for now” so he can’t be bothered to pray more, maybe because he doesn’t want to or because he is tired. It could be for any reason.
