I'll be arriving from Brazil at Terminal 8 (AA950) and just after I have a connection flight to Montreal (AA4508) at the same terminal. What are the proceedings? Would I need to re-check my baggage? What about clearing customs and security? Thanks.

You will be :
-clearing immigration
-picking up your bags
-clearing US customs
-transferring the bags at AA connecting flights counter
-clearing security

I will reach T4 by AI at 6.00 AM and then fight to San Juan at 2.29 PM from T8 by AA. can I make a trip to Manhattan and come back to JFK before 11.30 AM

Yes, It is roughly 1hr each way JFK-Manhattan(either by taxi or express bus).

I will be arriving from Barcelona at 1:55 p.m on American. Looking at a flight to OMA at 3:55 p.m. on Delta. Is that enough time to clear customs and get to T2 or T3?

You should be OK as long as you make it at Delta before 2:55pm. Clearing customs takes up to 40 min and between terminals 10-15 min.
Having your Delta boarding pass issued by American and checking the bags through will help you a lot.

I will be arriving this friday on AA to terminal 8 at 3:00pm I will then be leaving from term 4 with swiss air at 6:oopm.

You will pick up your bag at T8, domestic baggage claim which is on the first floor of the building. Then you will go to the second floor , follow the signs to the Airtrain and take it on track 2 to Terminal 4.

Can you explain me how to go to Terminal-3 from Terminal-8?

Go to the second floor of Terminal 8. Follow the signs to Airtrain. Take it on track 2. Terminal 3 is four stops away.

please explain how to go to Terminal-4 from Terminal-8?

Take Airtrain on the second floor of T8, on track 2. T4 is three stops away.

I am flying into terminal 8 and transferring to another flight that leaves terminal 8 five hours later. My flight arrives at the same time as the world cup soccer match between USA and England kicks off. Is there anywhere in terminal 8 that I might be able to watch the match, and if not, where might I be able to get to in the airport that would be showing the match. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks!

I have seen those kinds of events aired usually at the bars at the airport. There is a bar called "Drink Martini Bar" near gate 4 at Terminal 8.

If I'm arriving by Cathay pacific CX flight HKG-JFK in terminal 7 at 7:05am and wanted to take another flight to boston by AA at 8:15am JFK-BOS, is that enough time for me to clear immigration and claim my bags, transfer to terminal 8 and re-check in ? what is a good allowance time for such transfer ? can I check in my bag all the way from HKG to BOS ?
