This is marked as Cavalerius F, looks rather like a volcanic dome to me?

I see what you mean. Could be a crater on some high terrain. A closer ACT-REACT look is needed! There are some Cavalerius Hills but I think these are on the floor of the main Cavalerius  crater. (I should probably check my facts before I start typing... ::) )

This one is interesting, seems that it has a lot of original impactor there still, or am i being silly?

Or is the deeper bedrock forming the floor made of darker rock? Seems to be similar to the surrounding terrain - just by eye anyway. :-\

This would probably look very different under different lighting conditions. I've had many images like this with nothing much to see.

 8) Looks like an interesting impact into varying terrain.

Thanks for posting JP - wonder if this is caused by a "clustered" impact or secondary impact?

Not sure if this is a boulder or just part of the terrain (in Aristarchus):
