No, those are just separators, not shelves. Look for Closetmaid stuff in your area.

Yes. But you can usually buy just the shelves, not the whole set.

Will you be able to buy these and ship to you?

No, that's a closet organizer. You just want the plain shelves.

Are you asking about the closet shelves or the ebay link I posted?
Have you seen this page? https://www.guineapigcages.com/howtometric.htm
You'll only need one box of grids to build a cage, if the cage will be on the floor.

Yes, one set is enough. Unless you want to build a stand from the same grids, you'll need more.

You've got the list of what you need, right there.

All of the shelving I see on those ebay links are the from the US, so shipping would kill you. Contact these people and ask them where in NI you can find their shelving products: http://www.closetmaid.co.uk/

The coroplast will probably be called correx where you are. Or ask for corrugated plastic.

If you can't find shelving or grids, you might able to find play spaces like this: http://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/small-animal/small-animal-cages-habitats/you-and-me-run-and-play-space-small-animal-playpen. You'd have to put something down the edges to keep them from bowing out, but they can be made to work.

Is your ebay set to redirect you to items only sold in US?

That's really weird. I think it's the ad software that the forum uses that automatically add links to a word in the post. I think its called VigLink or something.
