AP vs. SAT + how to show foreign language profficiency

I know well several languages and I was thinking about how to show this to admission people (I am an upper-mid).

Basically, my options are either taking additional SAT tests or AP self-study tests.

Thus my questions are:

Which of Ap self study and SAT Subject Test do you consider easier and which method do you consider more impressive for the adcom ? *note: when asking wther you consider SAT Subj/AP easier, I am referring to the SAT Subject Test in German vs. AP German, SAT Spanish vs. Ap Spanish etc.

Is there any other way through which one could show the fact that one speaks several languages ? (>5) - being native in only one of these, no family whatsoever in the others

Also, are AP self study's useful ? Is it worth studying for them ? And if one takes the AP exam in a subject should he also take the SAT in that subject ? (as an additional subject I mean) ? Are additional SAT-s important, as again, to be worth studying for ?

Sorry for posing so many questions, I did not want to open more threads / ask these on other threads.
If you only have opinions on some of the questions, please answer.

Thanks a lot.
