Q: in ages とはどういう意味ですか?
A: In a very long time.

Q: I haven't seen you in ages とはどういう意味ですか?
A: You’re Welcome! You will also hear "I haven't seen you in forever" quite often. I think "Ages" roughly translates into 一昔, although in English it is often over exaggerated, you might say this to someone after not seeing them only a few months, even though the phrase is literally means "It's been years since I saw you" :) We love to over exaggerate in English ;)

Q: ​​You're definitely middle age when the telephone rings and you hope it's not for you. とはどういう意味ですか?
A: The only way I can interpret this it that when you are young, you are constantly dealing with your phone. You call friends and family, text, and play games or get on Instagram and Facbook. When you are older, the phone doesn't concern you as much. If someone does call, it's probably important or annoying.
Q: At my age. The candles cost more than a cake . とはどういう意味ですか?
A: 'At my age, the candles cost more than the cake'. It's a joke, by tradition one candle is bought for every year old you are for your birthday cake. If you're 10 years old, you get 10 candles, if you're 20 you get 20, etc. The joke means that, the person's age being so high, they have to buy so many candles that the total price of the candles is higher than that of the cake.

「Age」の類語とその違い

Q: from a young age と at an early age はどう違いますか?
A: The difference here is just in the words "at" and "from". "From a young age" and "from an early age" would mean the same thing. When you say "at" instead it has the connotation that something happened at that moment, and didn't necessarily continue to happen. When you say "from" it has the connotation that the event or trait has continued since that time.
Q: "At the age of 14, he started..." と "At age 14, he started..." と "At 14, he started..." and which one is correct? はどう違いますか?
A: They are all the same and they are all used.

You could also say "Aged 14, he started~".

The clearest however is your first one.
Q: It takes for ages と it takes ages はどう違いますか?
A: Saying "It takes for ages" sounds unnatural.
You could say, "I waited for ages," though.

The same applies to three months.
"It takes three months" is correct and "It takes for three months" is not.

Again, you could say "I waited for three months" or "I waited three months"

Q: an age と a period と an era と an epoch はどう違いますか?
A: they are very similar, usually its just a matter of what is normal for what you're talking about. Length-wise it's something like age>epoch>era>period

So the stone age, the modern era...epoch doesn't come up a lot. Period is often a cultural time, the Renaissance period for example. To confuse everything there's also The Age of Enlightenment and things in europe... different fields define them a little differently, but really they are all just ways to talk about chunks of time
