In brief: Difficult to say

Lot of the listed diagnoses may be caused by environmental or dietary habits like poor diet and tobacco use, although hereditary predilection may also play a role.
Chronic effects of tobacco on the health of an individual has been extensively documented and it's listed at this cdc link: http://www.Cdc.Gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/health_effects/effects_cig_smoking/index.Htm.

In brief: What caused what

Many of your diagnoses are interrelated.
Pvd, CAD and cva are common consequences of atherosclerotic vascular disease (a) made worse by hyperlipidemia, diabetes (d) and htn. The CHF and a fib and also be a consequence of a, due to an ischemic myopathy. The anemia and kidney disease could be due to HTN and d. The pulmonary HTN and COPD could be due to smoking. It's hard to say which is the cause.

In brief: Complicated

It is a very broad question.
Indeed, most of them can be the causes and results each other.

In brief: Dm

Uncontrolled diabetes could lead to peripheral vascular disease, kidney disease and failure, as well as heart disease.
Patients with congestive heart failure are prone to develop a trial fibrillation which increase risk of cva (stroke). Pulmonary hypertension has several causes and CHF is one of them.
