Mahalo! This is quite helpful. Also, I would like to note a few things:

1: I get that “e” is used as the imperative marker, but do you have to put “e” as an object marker each time? I don’t think so, but I may be wrong.

2: I always had the impression that “ʻAina” means “food”; and “ʻAi” means “to eat”, because I know that “ʻAina kakahiaka” means “Breakfast” (Literally: Morning food). Does this mean ʻaina and ʻai mean the same thing? I doubt it, but I’m eager to find out.

That’s all I’d like to note. Again, thanks for the guide, pal.

Hawaiian does not have clearly defined nouns and verbs like Western languages. ʻAi when used as a verb means to eat, but it can also be used as a noun to mean food. By the way, this is also occasionally so in English. For example, you can feed cows some animal feed. "Feed" is used as both a noun and a verb in this sentence. I am not an expert in Hawaiian, but my impression is that ʻAi means "food" (esp. vegetables), while ʻAina means "meal". So similar, but not the same meaning.
