1)Were the Sarmatians pushed westward and eventually were found in the Baltic States, Poland and parts of Russia? I understand that they were nomadic so would they have intermarried with the Baltic tribes as they probably did in Britain?. (No evidence that they returned with the Romans when they left Britain).

Maybe 1 or 2 Sarmatians transmigrants intermarried, who knows, but there are not any links with them (well links with balts of Baltic coast region), we can not say anything much about middle Dneper or upper Oka's balts.

2) Were the Alans similar to the Sarmatians? 

As i remember Alans were one of Sarmatian tribe

3) Do Thracians, Dacians and Scythians have connections with the Baltic lands? 

Some scholars believe that they had bigger contacts few thousands yer BC, and were one big ethnogroup before splitting to different branches, but we know any contacts since Greek Roman times, probably because of Carpathian mountains.

Others believe that Peripheral Baltic in conection with PaleoBalcanic languages formed Slavic branch.

But only hypothesis hypothesis and once again hypothesis
