Synonyms of "January" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between They will build it by january and They will have built it by January. and They will have built it until January. and They will build it until january and They will have been building it by(or until) January. ?
A: “They will build it by January” and “they will have built it by January” mean the same thing.

“They will build it until January” is technically correct, but sounds unnatural. It is an odd use of the word “until”. You could say instead: “they will finish building it in January” or “they will build it by January”.

“They will have been building it by/until January” is unnatural as well. Depending on what you actually mean by the sentence, you could say any of these: “they will have started building it by January” or “they have been building it since January” or “they will be building it until January”

Q: What is the difference between "In January, friday, monday, etc..." and "On January, friday, monday, etc..." ?

“On Friday” “on January seventeenth” because a day is a shorter period of time

Q: What is the difference between between January and June and from January to June ?
A: "Between January and June" isn't necessarily a set interval, whereas "From January to June" is more restrictive.

For example, "I know his birthday is somewhere between January and June, but I can't remember when." (A time between January and June)
Versus:
"I'm going overseas from January to June." (The trip lasts from January until June)

However, you can use the first one for set intervals as well. "I'll be overseas between January and June." (The trip lasts from January until June)

It all depends on how you word the premise of your sentence or what the context of your conversation is.
