I'm super confused by the pixel measurements because they don't seem to map to aspect ratios:

If your image is going to be header/hero background image you'll want to maintain a 16:9 aspect ratio. I make my header images 1600 x 500px.

but 1600x500 isn't 16:9? What am I missing?

Same question with the later images that you say should be 4:3 but then list 1600x1000 (which would be 4:2.5)
