I thought pulang was already returning home from previous lessons

Yes, me too. Still wondering why they add the " ke rumahnya" here.

'-nya' can be suffixed and functions as a possessive, like this :

rumah mereka = rumahnya = their house

rumah dia = rumahnya = his/her house

I keep wanting to use "kembali". Is it possible since "rumahnya" makes it clear where they're going?

Is "rumah mereka" false?

No, but I did not know nya can also work for mereka

Thanks, I didn't know it could be used on "mereka".

Return (home) = pulang
