1) You mentioned making the teak table match both the chairs and table, but the table and chairs in the picture do not match each other. So what is you are trying to match?

2) You can’t stain wood lighter, to my knowledge. You could bleach it and then stain. I think what you are trying to do is advanced finishing and will be challenging.
3) Matte finish is easy, just finish with waterbase polyurethane (because it’s neutral color) and then buff with 0000 steel wood and wax.
4) 220 is far enough.
5) Not sure about the worn look
6) Not sure they are both the same wood but I am only passingly familiar with teak. If they are different colors you will probably need different finishing schedules.
