Heres what I know:
com.apple.geod: Location services
com.apple.MailServiceAgent: Mail Helper
recentsd: Most likely tracks you recent files, apps, servers, etc.

Most of those other ones are app-related services, and if they aren't, it would be wise to google them to make sure they aren't malicious.

gamed is part of Game Center's framework
com.apple.CharacterPicker.FileService sounds like it's the OS X Character Viewer
pppd serviceid could be the PPP/PPPoE network service settings
