I was watching this video. It classifies conditionals as follows:

enter image description here

I see that these variations are missing:

  1. (Present → Past) If I say something, I destroyed everything.
  2. (Present Perfect → Present Perfect) If I have done it, I have done it for you.
  3. (Present Perfect → Future) If I have done it, I will do it again.
  4. (Present → Present perfect) If I eat pizza, I have also eaten cheese.
  5. (Past → Past) If I bought anything, I bought that with my own money.
  6. (Past → Past Perfect) If I did it last year, I had done it perfectly.
  7. (Past Perfect → Past Perfect) If I had done that, I had done that for you.
  8. (Past Future → Past future) If I would eat meat, I would not be a vegan anymore.
  9. (Future → Future) If I will do it, I will do it myself.
  10. (Future → Present) If I will tell him, I tell him on his face.

Are these sentences grammatically correct?

How can I classify these conditional sentences into 0th, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd conditionals?

If I bought anything, I bought that with my own money.

The correct pronoun (?) here is "it", not "that" -- "If ... I bought it with my own money." "That" refers to something specific, and there is no specific thing to refer to.

If I will do it, I will do it myself.

If I will tell him, I tell him on his face.

There is no need for "I will" in either of these sentences (I will do it myself is fine). "If I do it" and "If I tell him" imply future without any help. The correct preposition in the second sentence is "to", not "on", i.e., "... I will tell him to his face." I think that's idiomatic, i.e., I don't know that there's a grammar rule for it, it's just how it's always said.
