Synonyms of "Squeeze" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre squeeze e crush e squash ?
A: 'Squeeze' means to apply pressure or some kind of pushing/pressing force to something. 'Squash' means to apply so much pressure that the thing loses its original shape. It has the sense of making something flat. ... You can squeeze it with your hand but you couldn't apply enough pressure to squash it with your hand.

The package had been badly crushed in the post.
Add three cloves of crushed garlic.
His arm was badly crushed in the car accident.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre squeeze e squash ?
A: They can almost be used interchangably. Most of what I'm about to say probably changes from person to person.

The first difference that comes to mind is that squashing something implies it's doing harm or damage. But squeezing doesn't sound as bad. You might say, "I hugged my best friend, and squeezed her tightly" However there is still such a thing as squeezing too hard or tightly.

Squashing brings to mind the image of someone stepping on a an insect or a peice of fruit and destroying it. It also makes me imagine a downward force, but it doesn't have to be. I remember telling my chubby little brother when I was young to "get off of me, you're squashing me!" when we would wrestle :)

So there is a subtle difference. I can say for example that the word squeeze is always used when you're trying to get juice out of fruit.

Perhaps someone else might be able to add to my answer, but I hope that helps a little.

Q: What does "squeeze in the term" and "context allowing" mean?

There are lucky cases seemingly like this one where I still manage to squeeze in the term -- "Okay, all set!" would be my cheeky method, context allowing.
A: "squeeze in the term" here means to use the word's direct translation in the translation of the phrase. The phrase they're talking about is 「準備オーケー!」, which includes オーケー which is literally "okay" in English, so the person is saying that they find a way to translate the phrase using the actual words in the sentence rather than picking close equivalents if they can. The "squeeze" part is referring to how it can be difficult to think of a way of wording it to allow the directly translated word to make sense.

"context allowing" means that they'll only do it if it makes sense in the situation it's being used in. Here, 「準備オーケー」works fine as "okay, all set!" because in the situation of talking about preparations, this sentence makes sense. However, if someone was leaving a place and said 「行ってきます」, which literally would mean something like "I'm going and coming back", translating it like that would not make sense (in English) in this situation because that's not what people say in English. Here, you'd have to have a less direct translation and say something like "I'm going out" or "I'm off" because in the context, the direct words used don't mean the same thing in English as they do in Japanese, and so the context doesn't allow for a direct translation.
Q: I'd like to know what "squeeze" (at the end of the text) mean in the text below.
