A)Everyone has arrived here in some way.

B)Everyone has arrived here in one way or another.

1)Are they natural sounding sentences?

2)Do they have the same meaning?

3)Does 'some way' mean:

  • a particular way (unspecified) that all people went through

or

  • All people went through several kinds of way and 'some way' just tells that people went through any of them(not all people went through the same way in this interpretation)

?

They both sound natural, and mean the same thing.

3)Does 'some way' mean:

a particular way (unspecified) that all people went through or

All people went through several kinds of way and 'some way' just tells that people went through any of them(not all people went through the same way in this interpretation)

The 2nd option is correct. "Not all people went through the same way."

"A particular way (unspecified)" would be a missing 3rd sentence:

C) Everyone has arrived here in one way.

You arrive at a place by walking there, running there, taking a means of transportation.

Way would refer to the method of transportation used to get to the place.

A) What way did you get here? B) I took the bus.
