The only one we could say for sure is .bat, notepad will do for opening that. Different programmers use different extensions so a .dat could be binary or text based (for example). If you let us know the aapplication that creates them we could tell you, but without knowing that its impossable to say for sure.

.so is a shared object (pretty much a *nix equivalent to that of DLL's in Windows) file.
It can be disassembled (to see the disassembly code for it) using a disassembler that supports this file type.
.bat and .dat can be opened with your average text editor. If you're using Windows, WordPad works fine for both. .dat files are sometimes used to hold ascii (plain) text, and at others time to hold text which is encoded in a format other than ascii.
Are you sure there is a .file extension for a file? You may have misunderstood something about it and it may be a binary executable file (this is what *nix uses where Windows uses .exe) for use on a *nix system. It could also just contain ascii text.
I'm not sure what a .bif file is, but whenever in doubt, just use http://filext.com/. The site lets you search for a file extension type and gives you information about. I havn't yet found an extension type that it did not have information on.
