Como se dice? cuando you want to say you are going... in the formal vs. the familiar? Is it something like: Te vas (fam.) & Le va (form.)

Gracias por ayudarme.

En España, se utiliza mucho la expresión "le va" cuando quieres decir "le gusta". Es una expresión informal o familiar. Por ejemplo, "a él le va la música" = "a él le gusta la música". Actualmente se utiliza mucho la expresión "le va la marcha (diversión) = le gusta la marcha (diversión)". Hay más conjugaciones para cada persona.

También existe la expresión: a él le va a ir bien todo(everything will go well for him). (More or less). Se puede conjugar para todas las personas.

If I understood well, e.g. 'You are going to find someone who really love you' is equivalent to 'Tú vas a encontrar a alguien que realmente te quiera' or 'Usted va a encontrar....', but the selected phrase is lent or is suitable to be used with 'Tú'. Definitely, a better phrase is this: 'You are going to travel tomorrow morning': '(Tú) vas a viajar mañana en la mañana' or '(Usted) va a viajar mañana en la mañana'.

You might wish to read some of the discussions here contrasting the meaning of ir and irse.

Te vas=you are leaving (rather than going unless we're talking about the periphrases ir+a+verb infinitive)

Without context **it's hard to know what you are trying to say with the verb ir here, but if you are, indeed, trying to use the pronominal irse then it is **se va; not le va. (le is the 3rd. person, sing. i.o. pronoun, se is the 3rd person sing. & plural reflexive pronoun).

ir .vs. irse

In the salutation, ¿Cómo se va? How's it going with you? going would be a possibe translation so you need to provide context.This salutation can also be translated as just "How are you'"
