1.both と and に has the function of telling us the result of change，but に is often used in speaking and と is often used in writing.
2.both へ and に has the function of telling us the destination of action，but it sounds more natural to use へ.
3.both へ and に has the function of telling us the object of action，but へ emphasizes the process of action，while に emphasizes the result of action.
東京へ行きます。（The listener won’t know the destination, maybe it’s Tokyo, maybe not, only thing the listener knows is that Tokyo is one of the processes)
東京に行きます。（The listener will know that Tokyo is the result, is the destination.）
4.に is the place something exists，or the place you arrive at，BUT，で is the place the action happens（you take some actions here），DO NOT confuse them.
