Epiphysis is the rounded end of the long bone, diaphysis is the middle and longer part. The first has red blood cells, the latter has bone marrow and fat.

Metaphysis?

The dense connective tissue is in the perichondrium

Periosteum lines the outer surface of bone except at the joint of the long bone. Endosteum lines the inner surface of bones.
