German translation:Innenvierkantschraube
Explanation:
A wafer head screw is a Innenvierkantschraube, you can see one at the first URL below. I could not find examples of the other two types, but if you contact the company at the second URL, they might be able to help.

Explanation:
I found pictures for the other two types at the URL below, but I would not want to risk guessing the German equivalents. The bugle head appears to be a simple Kreuzschlitzschraube, whereas the trim head looks like a wafer head with the edges trimmed away.
