Some of these are idioms.  Snow job, means someone is trying to con or fool you.  Pass the Buckmeans to not except responsibility for your actions; to pass the blame for a mistake or wrong decision on to someone else.  Hot airis an idiom usually letting a person know that you don't think there is any validity in what he or she is saying. 

The rest of the words can be found in the dictionary at this site which will give you the part of speech and the definition.
