A: well, friend! the prefix prim- more or less means first, so all of these words have to do with the beginning, or with something being first. prime means of first importance, i.e a prime suspect; primary is similar in that it means something is important i.e, a primary goal that you need to finish first - however, it can also refer to the beginning of something, such as a point in time; primal, primordial, and primeval both refer to the beginning stages of development i.e, early humans are considered to be primal. the difference between the last three words are their connotations. primal, for ex., has a bit of a negative connotation. cavemen are primal, creation gods are primordial.

A: In the adjective yes, but with the noun is becomes a more abstract use of the first definition. It still relates to time, and a form of order (of life) but not necessarily the first part. It does still imply a degree of importance though. :)
