Synonyms of "Enemy" and their differences

Q: В чем разница между enemy и foe ?
A: They are synonyms and mean the same thing. Foe is more archaic sounding. Enemy is used more often. But both are perfectly acceptable and understood.
Q: В чем разница между enemy и opponent ?
A: All enemies are oppenents, but not all opponents are enemies.
“Enemy” implies hatred and a desire to do harm.
An opponent may just be someone that you work against for a limited purpose of competition. Example: “He will be my opponent in the big debate my class is holding on Friday. I will argue in favor of my point of view, and he will OPPOSE my arguments when it’s his turn to speak.” Or “She was my opponent in our chess match.”
Q: В чем разница между enemy и foe ?
A: They mean (roughly) the same, but they are not the same word.

It's not easy to point out all the possible subtleties of words in all possible uses, especially when it's used with other words. But I believe that, in a practical sense, "foe" is a more dignified term than "enemy". You can say that someone is a worthy foe, for example.
Q: В чем разница между They sent the enemy flying. и They sent the enemy fly. ?
A: the first is correct. Flying is the act of flight. Running for your life in this case. Fly simply describes the action. I drive a car and I fly a plane. I was driving (past tense) my car. I was flying my plane. In this sentence "sent" is past tense so flying works better.
Q: В чем разница между enemy и foe ?
A: They mean the same thing. "Foe" is used more often in combat or video games.

Q: I'm not your enemy, I can be the stone in your shoes, but your enemies are your fears,girl. это звучит нормально?
A: It sounds natural and poetic ;)

"stone in your shoes" means something that irritates you, in this context it sounds like your are pestering them to do something they don't want to do, but really should do for their own good (like go back to school or get rid of a bad boyfriend or something).
