How do I bridge the gap between 2 different floorings?
Part 1. I have Pergo flooring throughout my home except in the bathrooms where there is a 12" x 12" vinyl tile floor. There's about a half inch height difference between the levels of the 2 floors. How do I handle this?
Part 2. There are also Pergo to Pergo gaps that are even with each other, and are at the same level. Best way to fill the gap?
Part 3. There are small gaps where the Pergo was laid, and the pieces don't quite meet. How to fill the gaps?

I'm not sure this would work, but you can buy marble saddles for bathroom doorways. Maybe a tile dealer can help you find the right product. Then the saddle would just have to be cemented/glued in place, providing there's room under the door--otherwise, the door might have to be cropped a bit.
Otherwise, perhaps there is a wooden saddle product to bridge the space. Check with a flooring dealer.
What you need to purchase are transition pieces (also called transition strips, or threshold strips) with the correct cross section profile to join the different heights of the two types of flooring that you have.
The first picture below shows three wooden pieces. The second picture shows cross sections of transition pieces with various height profiles.
The wide marble threshold saddles likely will not work for you as the height difference between the different types of flooring is too high.
Here is a picture of a marble threshold saddle for anyone who is unfamiliar with what this product is. As they are made from marble, they are very durable and easy to clean, but also pricey.
Flipturn has got it. They make transition molding specifically made to cover gaps between two floorings.
