Synonyms of "Spill" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between spill and squirt ?
A: Spill means that something falls out of something else.

Squirt means that it is pushed out through a small hole.

A bottle has a nipple on the end with a small hole, so I would say squirt. Is more fitting.

If it where a cup with a large hole for the fluid to fall out freely, then it would spill.
Q: What is the difference between spill your peanuts and spill your guts ?
A: To spill your guts is to tell your deepest secrets or to say how you really feel. I've never heard of "spill your peanuts". I think it's kind of funny. Anyway, can you use that in a sentence for me?
Q: What is the difference between spilled and poured ?
A: Spilling is accidental
Pouring (from a bottle, for example) is intentional
Q: What is the difference between spilled and spilt ?
A: They are different past-tense forms. "Spilt" is the perfect past, and "spilled" is the simple past. In English, I think a lot of natives would have to think hard about which one is correct - I'm not even sure myself here. But basically you can say either "I spilled my drink" or "I had spilt my drink". But it wouldn't be weird to see "I spilt my drink" either.

Maybe some other natives can critique my answer. But basically I wouldn't worry about the difference too much :)
