For the clone operation, all you need is 1-3.

So, deselect 4, 5, 6, 7.
Adjust the target size of #3, to consume the rest of the target drive as needed (instructions in the list of steps above)
But what about the fact both partitions have content i.e. #4 has 476.7/557 and 7 has 17.8/500?

So:

The 557MB, and the 500MB are the two you wish to do something with?

Honestly, I'd just leave them.
500MB is tiny, in the context of a 1TB drive.
That is 0.1% of the size of the C or F partition.

Yeah, it looks funny. But you're not really gaining any space.

But...you can delete the 557MB, and then Extend the C partition into that space. Going from 474.15GB to 474.65GB.
The 500GB on the far right I would absolutely leave alone. I'm not sure you can extend that Recovery E into that space, without affecting that partition.

Good advice and much appreciated. If I was to follow up on your suggestion with respect to the 557MB I have to ask the question - what about the 476.7MB that's in the the 557MB?
