他に/にも/も/には/ all mean mostly the same thing. Though は has a stronger tendency to appear in negative sentences so try to not use it in affirmative ones, 他にも/他も doesn’t appear with negative sentences and この他 is used with nearby things.

:warning: ほかにも cannot be used in negative sentences with the exception of questions is another way to write ほか

Further Breakdown

Am I the only one who this think grammar point could use some refinements. I am not sure what the solution would be in particular but I find that this grammar point is particular is not very sticky and maybe the different aspects could be broken up into multiple grammar points as others have.

I have to agree. The structure breakdown is overwhelming. As you said, perhaps splitting it into multiple lessons would be better.
