Questions are where things get tricky because they have eyebrow raise or lowered depending on the type. I will go through each of your sentences and try to give some help. Read my comments below.

Yes, "Who there?" would be correct ASL as long as there is lowered eyebrows for both "who" and "there".

> Third Sentence

>    Do you love me? SHOULD BE ... You love me?

This is also correct if you have raised eyebrows for the signs in this sentence.

> Fourth Sentence
> 
>    He lives in America SHOULD BE ... He live America

While this is seen in ASL and actually perfectly correct, when taken out of context it might be better to say "He live here America." (assuming that we are also in America. *grin*)

>    Today the weather is sunny SHOULD BE ... Today weather sunny

This is fine.

> Sixth Sentence
> 
>    What is your name? SHOULD BE ... What your name?

This is one that gets really tricky. This should be "You name what?" with eyebrows lowered.

> Seventh Sentence
> 
>    My eyes are brown. Should BE ... My eyes brown

This is also fine.

> Eighth Sentence 
> 
>    Where is my Dictionary SHOULD BE ... Where my dictionary?

It should be "My dictionary where?" with eyebrows lowered.

> Ninth Sentence
> 
>    You are young SHOULD BE ... You young

This is fine.

> Tenth Sentence
> 
>    The kid is playing SHOULD BE ... Kid playing

This is fine, but just make sure that you use a repeated movement form rather than a singular to show that it is playing rather than play.

I hope that this helps.
