Hi and welcome.
Malware Bytes: Clam AV which should be in the repositories. I don't know if it is exactly the same but it does a thorough virus scan.
Truecypt: Truecrypt! You will need to grab it from their web site as it is typically not in repositories because it has an incompatible licence.
Spotify: No idea.
Puush: No idea
Notepad++: There are literally hundred of choices. Have a look at Geany which should be in the repositories.
Bluestacks: No idea.
uTorrent: uTorrent, transmission, deluge although that is not particularly lightweight.
Winrar: unrar although it is a command line tool
iPod management: Banshee, gpodder, Amarok, Rythmbox but as I don't have an iPod, I don't know how well they handle it or which versions
Vpn: try openvpn.
Hope this helps a bit"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

4 Ways To Make Linux Compatible With Even More Software

Should occupy you enough to find out what you need or don't need. The only thing personally for me that requires Windows still is motorcycle drm tuner software.
Linux cannot still handle that (no interest in interfacing with all the different auto/motorcycle computer modules) and the software is way too expensive for me to experiment with with WINE.
It is high dollar and run only once type, for one bike only.
Howdy and Welcome to the Forum also.
If there is more way to explain like my kenerl

Lots of text editors will do the same sort of thing as Notepad++. Try gedit and kate. Both usually installable with sudo apt-get gedit kate or
sudo zypper install gedit kate or
sudo yum install gedit kate
You will probably get an error message like gedit is already installed and is latest version
For zipping and unzipping, I find the archive manager can open many formats, e.g. 7-zip, with or without password.
For torrents I usually use Vuze and Azureus, which are new and old names for the same program.
