Loved this set of weekend workouts!
1. Is there any significant difference between using emmenager & demenager? In my classes, we've usually used demenager for "moving"
2. Why is it 'quelques annees' instead of 'quelques ans'? at Il y a + duration = Ago (expressions of time) , the example is given as Il est venu à Londres il y a cinq ans

You are right that "déménager" relates to moving house.
"Emménager" however relates to moving in / installing oneself / equipping, furnishing.
Quelques années relate to the duration of some years as against the years as in numerical periods of the decade for example.
Il y a + duration relates to "some time ago" so "Il y a cinq ans" means five years ago.
Hope this clears things up for you.
