In legal english, How and when to use affirm, uphold, reverse, overrule, remand, vacate? please put them in sentences for me.

It is hard to reply because the use might change depending on the details of the statement. We affirm choices but we also uphold them. We reverse and vacate all the time but without knowing more detail in how they are being used, it would be hard to answer much better.

so, you are saying, like affirm and uphold, they are synonym and can be used interchangeably?

No. We would affirm a law, meaning we would confirm it and say yes to it. We uphold a law, meaning we protect it and serve the law on it and don't break it. However, we could uphold what we confirm and confirm what we uphold. So, the use could change depending on many details of the sentence. That is why it is hard to answer.
