I broke up with my girlfriend in April last year but still love her a lot and want to get back with her. We chat often, but I haven't been able to tell her that I love her. Please help me

I'm not sure how you expect me or anyone to help when all you have to do is tell her how you feel. This isn't a stranger; it's someone you had a relationship with, so I can't imagine why you can't open up unless it's because you have a problem admitting to being wrong. If you chat often, choose to chat about your feelings for a change. If she doesn't feel the same way, at least you will be able to put this behind you. You can't expect her to assume you want her back without being specific. I don't expect her to wait forever either, if she hasn't already moved on.

The person I love is six years younger than I am. We have been in love for seven years now, but his friends take up all his time and we end up fighting. I want to marry him. What should I do?

Are you the only one who wants to marry or does he feel the same way? Age doesn't really have anything to do with this, unless he's a minor, which I assume he isn't. Have either of you had a conversation about the future? Do you both see a future together? If he gives his friends more importance than you claim he gives you, does he see things the same way? Being in love for seven years is one thing, but taking this forward is about both of you being on the same page, which involves mutual respect, understanding and communication. Only two people in a relationship can fully understand what the challenges of being in that space are, so I suggest you talk to him.
