for example, the first one returns void answer, but the remaining three gives same answer.. what exactly does this mean in the 'binary' example?

select cast(GETDATE() AS binary(5)) --0x2F00860F28;
 select cast(GETDATE() AS binary(6)) --0xA42F00860F28;
 select cast(GETDATE() AS binary(7)) --0x00A42F00860F28;
 select cast(GETDATE() AS binary(16)) --0x00000000000000000000A42F0086CA99;
 
 select cast(cast(GETDATE() AS binary(5)) as datetime) --'1900-02-17 08:07:45.430';
 select cast(cast(GETDATE() AS binary(6)) as datetime) --'2015-01-29 08:08:44.913';
 select cast(cast(GETDATE() AS binary(7)) as datetime) --'2015-01-29 08:08:44.913';
 select cast(cast(GETDATE() AS binary(16)) as datetime) --'2015-01-29 08:08:44.913';
 
'0xA42F00860F28' and '0x00A42F00860F28' and 0x00000000000000000000A42F00860F28 refer to same date?

other examples:

select CAST(convert(bigint,GETDATE(),110) AS bigint)
select CAST(convert(money,GETDATE(),110) AS money)

binary(5) shows a different result because it's not large enough to keep a datetime datatype so it truncates.
binary(6) is the correct length to handle a datetime.
binary(7) or higher will result in an addition of zero to the left side (a zero for length 7, two zero for length 8 and so on).
