It's impossible to find consecutive prime numbers after two because every other number after that is even and therefore divisible by two.

Find all pairs of consecutive prime numbers?

The only two consecutive numbers that are both prime are 2 and 3. Since there are no other even prime numbers (other than 2), there are no more pairs of consecutive prime numbers. Therefore, the term "twin primes" usually refers to pairs of prime numbers that are 2 numbers apart. Examples are (3, 5), (5, 7), (11, 13), (101, 103), and many others more. It is not currently know whether there are infinitely many twin primes.

Do any consecutive prime numbers have a difference of 8?

There are many cases of prime numbers with a difference of 8, for example (3, 11), and (101, 109). Look at a list of prime numbers, and you will quickly find more examples. If you mean, without other prime numbers in between, I believe the first such pair is (89, 97). I am pretty sure you will find more - just look at a table of prime numbers.
