And the third one.... well, it's so uncommon I can't even spot it on my keyboard and can't be bothered.

It's not on the keyboard.  In Word, if you have the appropriate setting, typing two hyphens together for a long dash, like we used to do on a mechanical typewriter in the old days, will give you this "em-dash" automatically.

补充:-)

a dash(-) is a longer hyphen (--)

hyphen        noun

SLA        a short written or printed line (-) that【 joins words or syllables [↪ dash]】

lineSLA [countable]        a line [ - ] used in writing to separate 【two closely related parts of a sentence,】 as for example, in the sentence 'Go home - they're waiting for you.'

楼主的这个情况是连接两个字母,因此是hyphen
dash类似中文的破折号
