Found them.

1st, the museum was very nice. Rushed me straight to information desk and exchanged my license for a key. (Figured worst case I can get a new one back home)

It was pouring and they lent us umbrellas.

To get to the Rabunim you walk towards the far right corner from the door. There is a small section with the kevorim.

Between the entrance and that section, off to right side, is a Matzeiva of the Chasam Sofer's mother. It is the approximate location of her grave.

The Nesia Tova app only tells you who is in  the cemetery. It doesn't give individual locations.

He's buried in the other Frankfurt (an Oder), on the Polish border. Didn't check the others in the list, but I suspect many others also.

can guarantee results.
but in many places in europe, and especially in germany, where they are very self conscious, even if u are un eligible for entry, if u kvetch that u are starving and havent eaten in 2 days etc, and u must leave just to get kosher food, they will let u leave.
also, a fake connecting flight from a nearby airport works wonders

I'm not sure if this belongs here or somewhere else, so if a mod wants to move this feel free, or if someone wants to make a Wiki with this info that could be done as well.

In short here is my TR from Frankfurt. (I do have pics if anyone wants I could add, I tried taking some "identifying" pics so it could be easy to explain where the locations are)

I arrived around 7 am, met some friends that landed about an hour later. We rented a van (as we were 7 people) with a GPS, and went to Worms. In Worms we davened in the Rashi Shul, checked out the Mikvah, dent in the wall, and the room where they say Rashi would learn/ talk to people. There is a chair built into the wall which they say is Rashi’s chair. We went to the Museum, not a whole lot of interesting things there but they gave us a map which helped us find the cemetery (info below)

We then went to Michelstadt, from Michelstadt we went back to Frankfurt. We went to the Old Old Cemetery, then to Zohar to eat and went back to the Airport. Below are all the addresses and or tips I have on finding these locations:

Worms:
Hintere Judengasse 6 67547 Worms – is the address for the Jewish Museum in the Rashi House
If you google “synagogenplatz 67547 Worms” you’ll see the parking lot where we parked and the Shul is right there.

According to Google, this is the address for the cemetery: Willy-Brandt-Ring 21, 67547 Worms, Germany ‎ if you look on Google maps it puts the location pretty close if not exactly by the entrance. We parked illegally on the sidewalk, I am not sure where there is real parking close by.

Michelstadt:
Am Stadion 11, Michelstadt, Germany
GPS brought us there with no issue it’s on the left side of the street. There are street signs directing you there as well.

Frankfurt:
Old Old Cemetery:
Battonnstraße 32 Frankfurt, Germany   
It will be on your right side. If you go to google maps and type this address in, if you click onto street view you will see the fence of the cemetery on the right side. I didn’t realize this and drove right by it..
(if you notice on the fence of the cemetery they have a small “brick” attached to the wall with a name, DOB, DOD & Location for each Jew from Frankfurt that was murdered during WW2) (1 very famous one there is Anne Frank)

Food:
Zohar
Savignystrasse 66 Frankfurt am Main, Hessen 60325
It’s a large building, seems like it’s a Community Center. They have security there, and they asked us for ID before they let us into the building. The food was good, not great. They only wanted cash and may have overpriced the conversion as we only had US dollars. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Preferred language there was Yiddish or Hebrew.

I was there 2 weeks ago, & your TR helped me to prepare for the trip, I was just in Michelstatd & Worms (a 7 hour stop in FRA).

here are my comments & updates

in Michelstatd the parking is across the cemetery, its belonging to a company, but as long its not fully occupied there is no problem to park there.
there are washrooms beside the cemetery, to open the lock you need to enter the Jewish year. 

in Worms there is space for 1-2 cars to park at the cemetery, you can also enter with the car to the cemetery area.
there is no parking at Rashi`s shul, you need to park in the streets around, & you need to pay for it (1 EUR per hour) & the machine accepts only coins, so make sure to have change with you, the museum also accepts only cash & no credit card, you need to vaccinated in order to access the museum, but no restrictions to enter the shul, the mikvah is closed for renovations for an unknown period.
