comment How do you say “What are the differences between car and motorcycle ”?
Yes, と is a particle. AとB is similar to "A and B" when both A and B are nouns.

The "difference" part is easy to answer, but I'm afraid I'm a bit stumped by 「間にそしてオートバイを」.

comment Difference between ごめんください and お邪魔します
This question has already been answered in chat, but I thought it would be a good question for the site itself (because answers are so easily lost in the chat history and because the answerer deserves to get reputation for answering).

comment Where does のみ come from?
In 精選日国, it says 二(終助)強く言い切る漢文訓読で用いられる。 and has the note (4)二は、漢文における文末助辞「耳」が限定・決定・強調に用いられ、日本語の副助詞「のみ」の用法に近いため、訓読文において文末の「耳」字を「のみ」と必ず訓じるよ‌​‌​うになり、意味も「限定」という論理性が薄れ、「強く言い切る」という情意性を表わすようになった用法。, so I think that ② in 大辞林 might be a misprint.

ごめん(御免) has other uses too, like ごめんだ and ごめんください.

comment Where does のみ come from?
Although it says ①は, I wonder if note (2) was actually intended to describe sense ②(文末に終助詞的に用いられて)それ以外に致しようがないというような意を込めて,強く言い切る。 「なんとかしてこの苦境を逃れようと,ただあせる-」

comment Origins of the Volitional Form
You mean "u-verbs" and "ru-verbs". Those labels don't make sense in kana (hasir-u is an "u-verb" but 走る ends in る, not う). You could call them 五段 and 一段 instead, though.
