bottom of oil pan looks like took a beating at one point and then as you can see from photo either end of where oil pan attaches is a different surface from the sides - dont' know if this is how it is suppose to be . also one random 9/16'' or 5/8'' bolt I believe in the back middle of oil pan - the surface is not even whole way around on engine .. it is lower in front and back

should I put extra sealant where it is lower or another piece of gasket to double it up in those areas to make it even with rest

Beat up oil pans are fairly common and don't prove much one way or another. The different looking sections at each end of the block are oil seal retainer plates. They have to be removable from the block or you wouldn't be able to install/remove the crankshaft. They are die cast parts thus look different. They are also softer material than cast iron so use care tightening bolts into them. If an existing bolt is oversize, somebody already stripped the threads and went oversize rather than sticking in a helicoil. If there is some misalignment of one of these parts, I would leave them as they are unless I was planning to change the corresponding crankshaft seal. The cork gasket can tolerate some unevenness. Use a little gasket sealer if they are mismatched enough to cause a problem.

and yes, I know Im late to the party here,
but to address the corners, I used a razor and shaved the excess gasket material sticking up smooth to block and then I used a small amount of silicone gasket sealer at each corner to deal with the irregular surfaces. A small amount goes a long way, you dont want it gooping and blobbing into the crank area when tightened.
