>From example 3 I guess that /usr/local/espresso/Espresso_mpi is actually a
link to <installdir>/bin/Espresso, which is a script that contains already
a simple mpirun command for Espresso. Therefore, you cannot execute it
using mpirun. If you need to run mpirun manually (for example to specify
the execution nodes), you need to execute Espresso_bin directly and set an
environment variable before, namely ESPRESSO_SCRIPTS. Look at the script
(/usr/local/espresso/Espresso_mpi probably) to see what you actually need
to export.

Apart from that I am also not quite sure about your
mpi invocations for MPICH in examples 1&2. I would expect something like
"mpirun -np 24 -machinefile <file> <path-to>/Espresso_bin <script>", where
file is a file containing the names of your execution nodes.
