All merged.
Top one is registered under the actual artist.
You don't need to specificy this every time, since it is not the criterion which is used for merging anyway, since it does in no way indicate that it might be the original file that we'd like to keep. On the contrary, in the first of your three posts the module registered to the actual artist actually contained some additional sample text added by a BBS, so it's definitely no the version that should be kept.

Noted... It's sometimes hard to tell which file is the original. As I'm new on this forum, you may want to point me to some guidelines if there are any.

Apart from that, I always appreciate credits for the author of a piece...

There aren't any guidelines, I decide which file should remain on a case-by-case basis.

These don't get lost when merging files. See also the first post of this thread.
