To answer your questions:
Yes, Eleanor de Lancaster and Eleanor Plantagenet are the same woman.
Alice de Warenne was married to Edmund fitz Alan, 2nd Earl of Arundel. They were the parents of Richard and Thomas, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Elizabeth de Bohun married Richard, the son of the above Richard.
Richardís marriage to his 1st wife, Isabel le Despencer, was contracted in their minority:
       His lordship, who with his other honors, had the Garter, contracted in minority and under constraint, marriage with Isabel, dau. of Hugh le Despencer. In 1345, he was divorced from this lady, and m. Lady Eleanor Plantagent. Sir John Bernard Burke, "Burke's American Families with British Ancestry"
Hope this ends the confusion. Regards
