Q: Qual é a diferença entre "abbreviate" e "omit" and "have deleted" and "do not include" e "shorten" and "simplify" e "suppress" e "represent" ?
A: "to abbreviate" is to shorten a phrase or term, while keeping it intact in some form. "red" to "r" for example. The concept of 'red' is still there, just in a shortened form. Abbreviate almost always applies exclusively to language -- names and the like.

"to omit" is to not include something in a greater whole in any form, on purpose.

"to delete" (computer terminology) is a fairly versatile verb, just meaning 消す, essentially. Something was removed from something. Very simple, broad usage.

"do not include" on its own is an imperative: "Do not include X". "not include" is fairly synonymous with "omit". While we're on the subject, "exclude" is another verb that means pretty much the same thing.

"to shorten" is just to make something shorter; to reduce its length. "To shorten a dress" would involve a sewing machine; "to shorten code" would involve a text editor. Broad meanings, basically dependent on what "length" is for whatever you're working with, code, dresses, a speech, etc.

"to simplify" is to make something simpler; less complicated. It could involve shortening, omissions, and abbreviations.

"to suppress" is to prevent something from appearing or occurring.

"to represent" is to stand in place of something else; a person, a concept, whatever. "I represented Japan on the council." "r here represents red." etc.

A: Shortening *them* to *em* is something that happens when speaking, especially casually. It should not be used in writing.

As the other commenter said, it is ok in text messages, because SMS is usually casual speech.

You will see it written in books and articles, often as " 'em ", when quoting the way someone would have spoken.
