When an elf dies he/she go's to the halls of mandos, but what form would the dead elves take, as presumably their spirit would leave their body;
and is there some kind of barrier between the halls and outside to prevent living elves of Aman entering.
What do they do in these halls , i bet theyre real bored waiting for the end of the world.

They sit in silent contemplation, thinking on the mistakes of their lives, until Mandos feels their spirits are again ready to leave the Halls and be reborn. For some this is only a short time (Finrod Felagund and Glorfindel) for others it will only occur at the End (Feanor). Some actually never wish to leave the Halls (Finwe's first wife, Miriel).
Where is it mentioned that Finrod or Feanor were "reborn"?
They buried the body of Felagund upon the hilltop of his own isle, and it was clean again; and the green grave of Finrod Finarfin's son, fairest of all the princes of the Elves, remained unviolate, until the land was changed and broken, and foundered under the destroying seas. But Finrod walks with Finarfin his father beneath the trees in Eldamar.
Then he died; but he had neither burial or tomb, for so fiery was his spirit that as it sped his body fell to ash, and was borne away like smoke;and his likeness has never again appeared in Arda, neither has his spirit left the Halls of Mandos.
Speaking of Feanor and the End, is it the bettle where Morgoth gets killed by Turin? In that case, if Turin was a human, how come he was there?
When Elves are deemed to be ready, they have the chance to return in body to Aman. Men's fate is not tied to Arda, so after their Time of Awaiting, their spirits pass West out of Arda.
