Celui, Ceux and Celle, Celles

Tell me the difference as well as how you can use them. I am terribly confused.

Celui du milieu = the one in the middle

Celui qui est à gauche = the one that is on the left

Celui-ci (formal) = this one

Celui-là (formal) = that one

Celui-là (informal, often pronounced 'çui-là') = this one/that one

Thank you, also, how would you say 'This woman is my friend' ? 1) Cette femme est ma ami. 2) Celle femme est ma ami.

The feminine form of 'ami' is 'amie'. And, since it begins with a vowel, 'ma' becomes 'mon', so 'my female friend' = 'mon amie'. 'Cette femme est mon amie.'
