Layla acoustic version by Clapton should be right down your alley. Pretty much anything by Weezer as well.
#3
The solo from Don't Stop Believing by Journey is pretty simple, and it sounds cool too.
#6
This might be a little too easy, but "One" by Three Dog Night is an easy solo.
On a slightly more difficult level, try anything by nirvana (other than those crazy noise anti-solos like on in utero :P), AC/DC.
To solo on your own try looking up the blues pentatonic scale and playing notes in it. Start off just playing the notes up and down then start going a little random and throw in some vibrato, held notes, etc.
