Some (many) of those could be honourary, and getting having more than one non-honourary doctorate isn't impossible, particularly in one's later years.
PhD is standard for an academic,
DSc is awarded after you've produced multiple pieces of research which are independantly verified to be of a very high standard,
DEng is usually honoury
Fellowship of Royal Societies and the like is usually awarded to ordinary members, once they've done a couple of particularly notable things in their field; Some are much stricter as to the impact their fellows must have made than others.
