The meaning of "Let" in various phrases and sentences

Q: Let me break the news to you. ne anlama geliyor?

Q: Let's go ahead and cue the flame, please. ne anlama geliyor?
A: If it was a director, he/she probably said "cue the film" (maybe you misheard?).

"Cue the flame" has no special meaning, what it does mean is "start the fire"... so if the scene had some sort of fire, then it would make sense to say "cue the flame".

Another more common expression is "cue the flame war". This expression is limited to online (internet) discussion forums. When people get into a heated argument or attack online, this is called a "flame war", so people may say "cue the flame war" when they think a "flame war" between users is about to start.
Q: Let me pencil that in for tomorrow. ne anlama geliyor?
A: It means booking an appointment that can be chanced or erased.
予約する時、消去されにあります。:)

Synonyms of "Let" and their differences

Q: Let's go! ve Here we go! arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Let's go!" 「行きましょう!」
"Here we go!" よく「さぁ、始めよう」
Q: Let it drop. ve Let the matter drop. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Well, in the context that you're asking someone to stop discussing something, " Drop it" is more common.

But to answer your question, 'let it drop' and 'let the matter drop' are the same thing.
'Let the matter drop' is being more detailed than just saying, 'let it drop.'

And while it's fine to say both those sentences, If you want to sound more like a
native, I would just say 'drop it'.
Q: Let's hang out together ve Let's go on a date arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Hang out together" usually means to spend time together platonically (not romantically, but as friends). "Let's hang out" is often used without the added word "together".

Some people use this phrase to ask someone they are interested in to spend time with them without the pressure of calling it a date. This is especially true when the person suggesting it is worried that the other person would turn down the idea of a date.

"Let's go on a date" almost always means a "romantic date," but some people use it for any planned get-together with a friend (not as common). For example, when my friend Sally and I plan a "wine night" we will call that a date.

Does this help?
Q: Let me get you something to drink. ve Let me give you something to drink. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: If I have to go buy or serve your drink, then I will use "get". If I have your drink in my hand, then I will use "give".
Q: Let me see. ve Please show me. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Let me see," can be a request to see something, or what we call in English a preamble... something you'd start a sentence with like the phrase えぇとね。。。In Japanese.

"Please show me," is a direct request to see something.
