I'm looking for some feedback. Is this the correct way to play ($22 on PS)?

hand # 5 and 7 are both folds because the short stack is in the BB. Two reasons essentially, you want them sticking around and they are likely to call as they have a large % of their stack already committed. A similar argument could be made for folding the pair of 5s in hand 2.

Thanks for your comments beeyjay. I also thought that I should have folded 55 as the BB. Another question is about slowing down after my chips went down and people knew what I was doing.

Should I have continued to push those last 2 hands?

I probably would have slowed down as you did. You had showed down some extremely questionable hands (although it was probably correct to have pushed most of them). I think you were going to be called a lot from there on out and you no longer had the chips to gamble with.
