good evening here, here are the answers for your questions.

specially vs especially:

It is better to use especially in front of adjectives to emphasize them, although some people also use specially

• The cake was especially good.

• This part is especially interesting.

Use especially to say that something applies more to one thing or situation than to others

• Everyone loved it, especially the children.

• You should call first, especially if you're going to be late.

Especially never comes at the start of a sentence

• He loves fruit. He especially likes kiwis (NOT Especially he likes ...).

Use specially to say that something is done or made for a particular purpose

• I got this specially for you.

• specially designed equipment

I went to the bus station to wait for him is correct (first comes the place then the infinitive of purpose).
