It just depends on whether you prefer to say 'cross' or 'go over.' 4. He tends to go overboard is the most interchangeable one so its gonna have the longest explanation. It can be used to describe somebody being intrusive, dramatic, or reckless. If somebody overreacted then you could say he went overboard. For example, somebody spills some water on you by accident, and you yell at them. You could say that you went overboard. Also, if somebody is reckless, you could use this one. For example, if you invite your friends over and you all have a couple drinks, somebody who over indulges and gets drunk could be considered to be going overboard. You could also use this one for somebody who is intrusive, such as in the first one, but it's not as common as the other two uses. 5.

    2. Hey there :) In my opinion, this sounded just a little unnatural, so I'm guessing you were trying to say something like this: If she hadn't (gotten) dressed up it would have been fine, but the worst thing is she put on a sleazy dress and now I'm overreacting a little. Something like that maybe? Truth be told, I didn't quite completely understand what you wanted to say, sorry about that :D
