How do I learn to differentiate between unsafe to delete registry & safe to delete registry in windows. I mean, is there a general way of telling the difference between safe & unsafe?

Check this article abut registry cleaners : https://blog.malwarebytes.com/cybercrime/2015/06/digital-snake-oil/
If you are not sure what is safe, just leave it the way it is, other way you may corrupt system files and cause a system crush.
Personally I clean registry with CCleaner only after uninstalling a program. All I clean is the entries related to the program I removed.

safe to delete registry are left over orphaned entries. check LocalMachine and CurrentUser for left over registry keys

RegDelNull v1.11

This command-line utility searches for and allows you to delete Registry keys that contain embedded-null characters and that are otherwise undeleteable using standard Registry-editing tools. Note: deleting Registry keys may cause the applications they are associated with to fail.

Register error are safe to delete. Entries of software installed in computer and system register keys are unsafe to delete.

4) What is the best way to delete?

Manual procedure: Only if you confirmly know that the entry is with error. Or a malware entries and safe to remove.

Malware entries: I will suggest you to use anti virus software and malware removal tool. Because it is not safe to delete most of the cases.

Unknown error or third party softwares and system tools: Using reputed tools is more recommended. They uses strong data base and knoledge base collection of such errors.

System files and Nfts related entry errors: Microsoft provide some builtin tools that can be run via cmd to clear such errors. But not assures you that it will fixs them all the time.

(a) CHKDSK /r/f/x

(b) sfc/scannow
