How do planets orbit the sun perfectly level with each other and also is the same rotation around the sun as the photos and diagrams show?
How do all the planets orbit the sun on the same axis and same rotation around the sun?

Think of a sun it is the only thing in the sky but it spins .... Then it grows old and explodes in a nova or supernova. The sun will still have mass and the paticles will spin
But as the particles get farther from the sun they will not make a sphere they will flatten into a hot spinning disk ..
Heavy material like iron and urananium and oxygen will be close to the sun ... Hydrogen will make up most of the particles far from it ..
If you watched a nova it would coalesce into a flying saucer shape then clumps of rock would pull or crash together as they get close while spinning basically most of the planets formed on the equator of the sun before ours that eventually died and went nova

The planets do NOT orbit the sun "perfectly level with each other". Each planets orbit is tilted. Diagrams showing them on the same plane are made that way for simplicity and because they diagrams are NOT diagrams designed to show the tilt of each of the orbits.

They're not perfectly level, but are close to being so. This is because the solar system formed out of a cloud which rotated and flattened out first.

The formation and evolution of the Solar System began 4.6 billion years ago with the gravitational collapse of a small part of a giant molecular cloud. Most of the collapsing mass collected in the center, forming the Sun, while the rest flattened into a protoplanetary disk out of which the planets, moons, asteroids, and other small Solar System bodies formed.

Because of the spin of the Molecular Cloud that formed Our Solar System
Then Angular Momentum took over

Your question is so oddly phrased I am not sure what you think you are asking. The planets are not all moving in the same plane. The Earth's orbit (which is tilted 7 degrees to the Sun's equator) is called the ecliptic. Other planets' orbits are tilted with respect to the ecliptic by from 3 to 17 degrees, depending on which planet. Their rotational axes are tilted from as little as 2 minutes of arc to as much as 187 degrees to their orbits.

Uranus and Pluto do not fit into orbiting the sun in a "perfectly level" pattern. Saturn does not fit into "same rotation"(direction?) unless poorly worded question was intended to use the word "orbit"?
Science offers several 'models' of core accretion from a solar nebula. And there are exceptions in choice of models such as Venus's 'retrograde' rotation unique to our solar system, and questionably explained by an impactor flipping the planet half a turn. But Venus does not have an impactor moon so glancing impactor has logical theory support. (or had resulting impactor satellite moon but lost satellite)
Saturn is a story of cayuse 38 of it's 62 smaller distant moons have an inclination up to 171 degrees. Rotational orbits are mixed unknown between prograde and retrograde obits.

Planets revolve, not rotate, around the sun, and they are not all in the same plane, especially Uranus.

There are no planets. The sun revolves over and above the Earth plane.

They are all roughly in the same plane, not not exactly. They do orbit in the same direction.
It all comes back to how the planets were formed, from clouds of gas and dust swirling around the sun. The clouds all were moving around the sun in about the same plane and same direction, and the planets resulted from those clouds condensing and combining into the planets.
