Synonyms of "Letters" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between There were two letters on the table. and Two letters were on the table. ?
A: Hey! These sentences mean the same thing. The first sentence sounds more descriptive, like setting a scene. The second sentence is simply a more direct and to the point way of saying it. It's stating a fact. Both of these are correct and neither is better than the other it's personal preference. I hope this helps :)
Q: What is the difference between I will send some letters to you describing my trip. and I will send some letters to you to describe my trip. and I will send some letters for describing my trip to you. and I will send some letters to you for describing my trip. ?
A: you’d generally use “i will send you some letters to describe my trip” for present tense. for past tense it would be “i have sent you some letters describing my trip to”.
Q: What is the difference between I will send some letters to you describing my trip. and I will send some letters to you to describe my trip. and I will send some letters for describing my trip to you. and I will send some letters to you for describing my trip. ?
A: The first one is the most natural sounding. The second is a little weird sounding; its like you are sending letters to the person for THEM to describe your trip instead of you sending them letters that you described your trip on. The third one sounds strange as well, but sounds more like broken english than the second one. The fourth also sounds weird. When you use a preposition like "to" or "for" in a sentence like this, it seems like what is after "to" or "for" is what you want the other person to do with the letters, not describing what you, the speaker, intend to do with the letters.

The first one is definitely the best one. There is no problem with it, though personally, I would say "I will send you some letters describing my trip." It sounds a little more natural in my opinion.
Q: What is the difference between letters and characters ?
A: as far as i know, punctation, kommas and numbers are also characters, while letters are, well, letters. like "A", "b", "c" and so on.
