Which one out of these three would you use in your garage for making things slide against each other better (nuts & bolt threads , etc)?

none of them are great lubricants if that's what you are asking. PBlaster will actually dry up after a couple of days.

"making things slide better" ok well that'd be a lubricant and none of those. Aerokroil would be a better choice it seems to have a little bit of lube in it. If it is on a bolt I use antiseize or grease. You must adjust torque accordingly though or risk braking the bolt or nut off.

As for anything else it sort of depends on the what it is. I've used various grease, Mobil 1 spray lube, Aerokroil, lithium grease, silicone, chain, pivot/pin spray lube, etc

Let's say those were your only choices (well Advance Auto Parts Multi=Purpose Lubricant (MPL and WD-40 as well) and you needed something to tide you over until you ordered some Schaffers Penetro stuff.

as far as what I want it for I should haev been more specific: making things slide that aren't currently disposed to slide (like things that are siezed and/or rusted)

Some cautious application of heat (propane torch)and just about any penetrating lubricant. It might also be beneficial to set up some vibration via carefull appliction of a hammer blow.

Heat it up really good with aforementioned torch, and then touch a candle to the bolt: the wax will penetrate between the bolt and nut and act as a lubricant. Also, turning the nut the other way (tightening) a little bit right before attempting to loosen it after doing this often helps.

Use a good antiseize.

Same thing happened here. Jeep Liberty. I don't remember if I used anti-sieze. I probably did because that would be usual.
One bolt fell out, and brakes began to make noise. Small bolt on the caliper slide, not a large fastener that takes much force.
Now the four of them are in with LocTite.

On those caliper bolts antyhing will be easier to loosen than rust/corrosion. Be it LokTite or antiseize. Make sure your torque 'em correctly!

I WAS not suggesting using anti-seize on any critical torque brake fastener requiring Loc-Tite.

As stated NONE is any much of a lube and even stinkin' WD-40 (useless as a penetrant) will be a better "lube".

For a lube I've been using either Mobil 1 75W-90 or Mobil 1 grease, both of which work much better than the dino grease or one of a half a dozen other oil type lubes that I've used over the years. I still buy WD40 by the gallon for gentle cleaning/short term protection; shivels, lawn mower, hand tools, saws, etc.

The best penetrating oil I've found is a product called Rust Reaper. I've never had much luck with ones I've tried but this stuff works very well.

I've been using my torch for the tough rusted bolts for 25 years. I just recently used the candle wax trick and it really does work! It's now part of my tool kit.

Schaeffer's Penetro 90 is the best penetrating oil plus an extreme pressure lube. Liquid Wrench is old fashioned, moderately effective as a penetrant, and cheap. B'laster PB, Kroil, and DeepCreep are better penetrants. All are better than WD-40. Penetro 90 is the only decent lube of the bunch.

I've spent 35 years working on rusted parts on steamships. I've used beeswax to penetrate threads that were too hot for penetrating oil, and used the gas axe many, many times. If the materials are different, heating then cold shocking with cold water sometimes works, but also removes the temper.

To get things to slide you need lube. It all depends on conditions. Antisieze is terrible for things that must keep moving, great for things that will be stationare until you take them apart.
