Should you use a comma when ending a sentence with a persons name? ?
For example, What are you doing, Lilly? Or I am very sorry, Aaron.

you should. it is possible to make sentences where it is not what you want, but it almost always is what you actually do want, so normally, yes, you ought to include the comma before the name of the person.

Yes, whenever you're speaking directly to a person, you put commas around their name. "Let's eat, Grandma!" means something very different from "Let's eat Grandma!" One is an invitation to dinner; the other is an incitement to cannibalism.

No comma should be used in the cases you list.

Yes definitely, even if it's not a name. Not doing so could cause confusion.
"Let's eat , grandpa" has a different meaning than "let's eat grandpa"
