comment “Dans ma rue” - when does it mean “in my street” and when “to my street”?
It's not a problem of English, it's a problem of French having the same word to mean two different things (dans as a position and dans as a direction). You are, however, right about the problem being tackling the wrong way: this is not an idiom and has absolutely nothing to do with the complement being the street, the difference stands for many possible directions/positions.

comment Negated “moi”: which person should be used (first/third)?
@ThanosDarkadakis yes except in French, moi enforces the first person. You would say C'est moi qui vais à Paris but C'est moi celui qui va à Paris. Hope this makes more sense.
