B°/F is a B diminished chord with an F bass note
Bm/F# is a B minor with F# bass note
Bb/F is Bb major with F bass note
F#m7(b5) is an F# minor seventh chord with a flat fifth, which just means its a fully diminished seventh chord

i'm not sure on the first chord, and the flat 5 gets me on the last one, but i can tab out the other two.

Bm/F# Bb/F
---2---------1---
---3---------3---
---4---------3---
---4---------3---
---2---------1---
---2---------1---

the /F#, /F basicaly mean add that bass note. so for these two chords, bar the 2nd and 1st fret, respectively, the finger the rest of the chord as normal.

A m7(b5) is a half-diminished chord. For it to be fully dimishished the seventh would need to be a bb7, not just a b7th.

when you have a note like; ex. C/E or C/G, as noted above, the E, and G are played in the bass, however the C is still the root....this form is known as an inversion...since the
key of C Maj is C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C in this case E being the major 3rd, G the fifth, and B the Maj 7th,...C/E is the first inversion, C/G is the 2nd inversion and C/B is the the 3rd inversion....
so when you see something like this think major scale... R W 2 W 3 H 4 W 5 W 6 W 7 H 8VA, and so on and so forth with minor and other modes..
