You got all the sentences correct! Well done! Concerning your query about the second sentence, both options are correct. However, "Have you been into the cathedral?" implies that the speaker is asking the person as they are standing outside of the cathedral. The second one, "did you go into the cathedral?" sounds like it is the end of the day and the speaker is asking they visited the cathedral on their tour today.
