HINTS:

Overall Categories:

For few I am a mirror,
For some in your eye.
For more I am one of your decorations,
and all near the border!

The following hints refer to 1 or more images in the range:

1~4:

My alpha is a twisted nil,
My omicron oft beguiled.
My omega asks me favour this why,
But lo! Simple and sweet am I.

This hint refers to image no:

1

6~8:

Be well convinced,
My future ain't bright.
Alter your vision,
And you'll see me right.

This hint refers to image no:

7

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

9 & 10

13~16:

The truth unveiled,
The falses revealed,
Just bear in mind,
What's going on behind...
enter image description here

Hint on category:

Pay attention to the tags of the question >;)
and sadly, the puzzle has become harder to solve now because of the time...
perhaps this would make it easier to solve the rebus?

    $\begingroup$ @OmegaKrypton I didn't unupvote, but to give my honest opinion, I think the puzzle is really under-clued (of course I might just be missing something obvious). Most of the rebuses are just pictures hinting at a word, and in most cases there are multiple possibilities for that word. The hints relating to particular images are more like riddles in themselves, and they really haven't helped me at all. Even knowing what the categories are, I haven't been able to figure out all the words you have in mind (again, might just be because I've missed a bunch of things). Just my thoughts. $\endgroup$ – Volatility Jan 2 at 12:27

Partial answer

Each of the pictures is a rebus for one of the following things on the border of the PSE site:
- the question tags on PSE.
- the users on PSE.
- the links on the bar on the top of the site
- a hat from Winter Bash 2018

The solutions (tentative):

?, IDENTIFICATION DIVISION, Inbox, @hexomino
?, Gonna Find Out, ?, ?
Achievements, Help, ?,
@rand al'thor, Pizza Hat, , ?

The only connect:

there are four rebuses which clue items from the four categories listed above; this gives the groupings.

  • $\begingroup$ (hopefully) more specific and may help to solve all rebuses: ROT13(gurl ner gur gbc 4: gbc 4 hfref, gbc 4 gntf, rgp.) $\endgroup$ – athin Dec 28 '18 at 10:39
  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps the bottom right could be rubiks-cube $\endgroup$ – a guy Dec 31 '18 at 8:42
  • $\begingroup$ @aguy nice try but no, see hint 13-16 :) $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Dec 31 '18 at 13:52
  • $\begingroup$ @OmegaKrypton a pointer might be useful. Will it be obvious when I have the right solution for each rebus? $\endgroup$ – Volatility Jan 1 at 4:31
  • $\begingroup$ yes, the wall is very easy to solve $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jan 1 at 4:35
