Kemetic Iconography Clarification

Many times while looking at pictures or statuary it is hard to tell deities apart. The people who sell these items don't help because oftentimes they mislabel them. I've seen a Ma'ahes statue labeled as Sekhmet and a Yinepu or Wepwawet statue labeled as Isis.

So what are differences in iconography with Amun and Amun-Ra?
Atum and Atum-Ra?

Nebet Het and Nebet Het-Seshat?

Yinepu and Wepwawet? Wepwawet and Wepwawet-Ra?

Aset and Hethert? Aset-Hethert?

Heru and Khonsu?

Heru Wer and Heru-sa-Aset?

Ra and Ra-Heru Akhety?
