'memakan' never used.

I've never heard "memakan" used either. Everybody I know just says "makan," and that's even the people who speak in a high formal variety of the language and who sound educated. "Memakan" is hyper-correction. Speaking well and properly isn't merely playing the word-substitution game from one language to another.

[EDIT:] "memakan" might be technically correct, but it is seldom ever used.

What is the difference between lagi and lagi-lagi?

"lagi" is one time. "lagi-lagi" is more like "over and over again," as a recurring, continuous trend.
