what are those weeds and how to kill them

I am in Central NJ
Did some major yard work that tore up half my backyard....
Finally few months ago I re-graded and seeded the entire area.
However, much of the front yard and other areas have 3 types of weeds I am not familiar with and not sure if I should use broad leaves or some other selective herbicide
Please note - most of them are in the old section (old lawn )
Some pictures attached;
First two are this weed that grows upright with a single root, easy to pull out
Next two are two others that are growing low to the ground and seem to be spreading like a net.
You can ignore other weeds, like the crabgrass.... just wondering about the 3 specific weeds.

Thank you !

I see clover and quack grass (basically any broad leaf blade grass).

All the weeds can be managed by any general yard weed killer. The quack grass will need a general weed/grass killer.

I just have 2 spray bottles that I walk around and hit them with, after 4 weeks most of it is gone!

Consider a lawn an annual work in progress. Throw some seed soon and weed and feed in spring, Eventually the area should thicken and keep problems at bay.

I'm seeing chickweed, clover and maybe bedstraw. I would use a herbicide containing 2,4-D. It's an inexpensive broad leaf herbicide which will not harm most turfgrasses. Only treat your lawn if you are getting rain and the lawn is currently growing. If you are having a drought and record high temperatures like me then it's not the best time to apply herbicide.
