What are some (non- third party application) methods for migration to Sharepoint online? I have been referred by Microsoft, to use third party tools like metalogics but this will be a repeated process for me and I do not want to purchase additional volume moves from third party companies.
I read Microsoft Press’ Microsoft ‘ SharePoint 2010: Deploying Cloud-Based Solutions’ and found that you can Build the SharePoint online site from scratch; and move files using explorer view, but loose content types; or Save a library or list as a template with existing data then restore it to SharePoint online- there is a 50MB limit; or Use SharePoint Online Dedicated, and send physical copy of the content database to Microsoft and they will migrate it, and also was told by a Microsoft worker that SharePoint workspace could be used;but is there another way that is API or PowerShell script based?

You can't use PowerShell with SharePoint Online unfortunately. The save site as template method probably won't be very reliable as you mentioned. So your options are to manually upload or to write .NET code and use the Client Object Model to push documents up to SharePoint Online.
On a side note, I've used Metalogix Migration Manager to move content to SharePoint Online and it works pretty well. I don't work for them either. :) Chances are you could purchase their tool cheaper than the amount of hours you are going to spend trying to work around it.

I've published a library that makes it possible to script against SharePoint Online with PowerShell.
