Do not be! Are these phrases correct? Please explain. Thank you. Don't be sad! Be happy! Don't be here, please! Please leave here!

3. Don't be here, please! No, this is not a set phrase. A correct option would be: "I don't want you here!" 4. Please leave here! This one is ok but you can drop 'here.' To me it sounds a little more natural to omit 'here.'

The first two are completely fine! "Don't be here, please!" Sounds quite funny to the average English speaker. If the person in question is not there yet but is on their way, you could say "don't come here, please!" However if they were already there, you would just ask them to leave. "Please leave here" should just be said as "please leave", as if you're asking someone to leave it implies that they're already "here" (there).
