Front entrance problems

My home's front entrance consists of several big stones.
There are some gaps betweens the big stones.
Please suggest solutions to the problems.
The gap as shown in the attached files 1 and 2 is between concrete and stone, should I cover the gap with concrete?
The gaps as shown in the attached files 3, 4 and 5 are between adjacent stones. I had moved the stones last year horizontally so that there are no gaps. However, the gap reappear this year.
Another problem is that the stones are not even vertically. I had moved the stones last year and leveled the small stones underneath, then moved the stones back. However, the stones become uneven vertically again this year.
The files 1 to 5 are available at:
4shared - free file sharing and storage - share folder - My 4shared

Your stones are moving, that issue needs to be addressed first

Hi Albert - I agree with Mitch, you have to address the movement. It looks like what you are calling stones are actually a manufactured product. From the photos it looks like they may be lying on top of pavers?

How thick are they? What are they resting on? Can you lift one and take a pic?
