Here are a few sentences for alım/elim (let us .....)

İstanbul´a gidelim. Let´s go to Istanbul.

Hadi bakalım! Come on, let´s see!

Eve dönelim mi? Shall we go (return) home?

Bu akşam televizyonu seyredelim. Let´s watch TV this evening

Here is a link explaining more about imperative suffixes

I´m not sure if you mean the negative ability combination suffix (the opposite to abil/ebil)

It is a/e (ability) followed by the negative suffix ma/me

Hasta olduğum için bugün okula gidemeyeceğim

I won´t be able to go to school today because I am sick (because of me being sick)

Geçen yıl İstanbul´a gidemedim. I couldn´t go to Istanbul last year.

Bu yıl İstanbul´a gidemem. I can´t go to Istanbul this year.

I guess when you ask for ´ara´ examples that you probably want (y)arak/erek 

Quote:qdemir

The gerunds of state -erek / -arak is formed by adding -erek / -arak to the verb base: yürü-y-erek, koş-arak, çalış-arak, dinle-y-erek, anla-y-arak, ("y" is the buffer letter)… 
When the suffix -erek / -arak is added to the verbs “demek” and “yemek” the “e” in the verb bases changes to “i”: diyerek, yiyerek. 

The gerunds of state -erek / -arak is used to express how the action occured, or in what manner it occured. It corresponds to “……ing” or “by ……ing” in English. The important point is: the gerunds of state -erek / -arak is used in the sense of “while”. That’s, the main action occurs while an other action is going on. 

Çocuklar koşarak parka gittiler. (The children went to the park by running.) 
Taksim’den Beşiktaş’a yürüyerek gittik. (We went to Beşiktaş from Taksim on foot) 
Gözlerinin içine bakarak “seni seviyorum” dedi. (Looking into her eyes “I love you” he said.) 
Titreyerek ellerimi kaldırdım. (Trembling, I raised my hands.) 
Mehmet kapıyı çarparak odadan çıktı. (Mehmet went out of the room by slamming the door.)

For dikçe 

Quote:Melek74

When the -dikçe suffix is attached to a verb stem it indicates a certain continutity or repetitiveness to that verb. In English, that can be expressed by many words such as, for example: as, each time, every time, whenever, the more, as long as, so long as, etc.

 

Here´s some examples to maybe clarify it a bit:

 

Arkadaşını gördükçe yüzü güler. Whenever you see your friend, he´s happy.

Onu gördükçe ağlar. Whenever he sees it, he weeps.

Çocuk, büyüdükçe güzelleşiyor. As the child is growing, s/he is getting more beautiful/handsome.

Yaşlandıkça hayatı daha bir ciddiye aliyor. As he gets older, he takes his life more seriously.

Gönül taze kaldıkça insan ihtiyarlamaz. A person doesn´t grow old as long as his/her heart stays young.

 

So this can be translated in many ways, not only as "the more" - the idea is that something happens continuously or is repetitious.
