The Commander in Chief is also know as the President of the United States, and is the executive officer of the Executive branch. He is elected into office, and can be impeached by none other than congress.
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is in charge of the Judicial Branch of the United States. He is appointed by the president, and passed by congress. He can be impeached by the president and congress (Or one of the two, I'm not sure)
The United States Congress consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. They are in charge of the Legislative branch. I believe they can be impeached by each other (Not sure, so don't quote me) and the President of the United States.
The Attorney General of the United States is in charge of the Department of Justice, which is a part of the Executive Branch. He is appointed by the United States President. The Postmaster General is in charge of the United States Postal Service, and is also appointed by the United States President. The Director of National Intelligence is in charge of the Department of National Intelligence. The United States Army General is the highest ranking in the Army, and is appointed by the President (I believe)
I am not sure about the last two.

You ask a question that requires an extremely long answer. Your question leads me to believe you know absolutely nothing about American government. There's no easy way to do this - you're going to have to do a lot of reading.
