Colloquially, add or include are probably more commonly used than insert. Insert sounds a little more formal or high register, which is why official instructions will use it.
Each one gave about 80% of right answers
I get what you mean, but the way you wrote that sentence, it sounds like each test gave the right answer 80% of the time (or in other words, the test was the transitive agent). I would say something like "I got the same result for/with each one: 80%" or "I got about 80% on each one" or, if you want to stick more closely to what you wrote, you could say "each one gave me about the same results - 80%".
which is not bad given I studied Portuguese for only 2 years 10 years ago and I'm not practicing it other way any way other than on Unilang
I don't understand why I cannot write in
For some reason "in better Portuguese" sounds slightly off or not natural to my ears. I would probably say either "write better in Portuguese", "write (in) Portuguese better" or even "write better Portuguese".

Yeah, france-eesti, Osias is right. Reading more can help you. But also remember that online level tests aren't necessarily the best indicator of your actual level. I've always found it easier to do well on online level tests than in real situations where I'm trying to use the language. That's because with the tests I can use things like visual cues. Or sometimes I can answer correctly only because I remember the correct grammatical usage, but I actually don't understand the whole sentence yet I don't need to because it's an online test. This is particularly the case when the tests are multiple choice, which most of the English online level tests are. I think if any of these tests were short answer questions, then it would be a slightly truer representation of your actual level.
