#'s 1, 3, 6 and 7 you can keep as is - they are in common usage. I am familiar with the gyros spice mix (not to use but I know of it) and I am in Australia so I would leave as is too.

So it is only 2 & 5 that you may need assistance with IMO, and unfortunately, I am not the one to do that!! :-(

From Wikipedia,
Pepperoncini are a variety of the species Capsicum annuum, like bell peppers and chili peppers. They are also known as Tuscan peppers, sweet Italian peppers and golden Greek peppers. While called pepperoncini in American English, in Italy these particular kind of peppers are called friggitello (plural friggitelli) or more generally peperone (plural peperoni) like other sweet varieties of peppers, while the term peperoncini (singular peperoncino) is used for hotter varieties of chili peppers.

Tomato pelati seems to mean peeled canned tomatoes.
