Since 1981 theologians from the Coptic and Orthodox churches have been meeting to resolve differences, and have concluded that many of the differences are caused by the two groups using different terminology to describe the same thing.

In the summer of 2001, the Coptic Orthodox and Greek Orthodox Patriarchates of Alexandria agreed to recognize the sacrament of marriage (and baptisms) of one another.

Yes, according to an agreement reached between the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria and the Coptic Orthodox Church in 2001. Actually, prior to this agreement, a Greek Orthodox person could still have married a Coptic Orthodox person, but for the marriage to be recognized by both Churches it would have had to be performed twice (once in each Church).

Can macedonian orthodox marry in greek orthodox?

Macedonian orthodox like Athenian orthodox and Thessalian, Epirotian, Thracian orthodox can all marry in the Greek Orthodox Church no matter where in Greece they hail from. The foreign church of the Former Yugoslav Republic is a schismatic church and not recognized by the ecumenical patriarchy of Constantinople as an orthodox church. Therefore no Greek, whether Macedonian, Athenian, Thessalian etc can marry in the church of the former Yugoslav Republic but the various ethnicities of the Former Yugoslav Republic who follow their Christian church can marry in a Greek Orthodox Church.
