SOURCE: Suspension

That's known as negative camber (positive camber would be if the top of the tire were leaning outward). This should be able to be fixed with an alignment as long as the suspension isn't damaged (ie, a bent control arm due to an accident or a hard hit on a curb, pothole, etc).

SOURCE: i have 95 ford f150 my front wheels are leaning

Some lean can be normal, but if you are noticing it after owning the truck for awhile you are right to be concerned.

If you know how to check the balljoints, check them for excessive movement. Also look at your tierod ends. If it has been some time since you had an alignment now would be a good time to do it. The parts have to be tight to hold a good alignment.
Most places will do an estimate first before the repair. This will give you a chance to change out the parts you feel comfortable about and save a little money.

SOURCE: front right wheel is leaning inward

You have a major amount of positive camber. You car must be undrivable. Did you hit something? You need to get it into a suspension centre and find out what has been bent.

SOURCE: the rear driver side wheel

You did not indicate which Model vehicle this is. In general, a car with front-wheel drive has rear wheels which are Independent of each other. This means there is no solid axle going from one side of the car to the other.

The Independent rear wheel is mounted to a strut. The strut assembly is adjustable and gets an Alignment just like the front-end parts do. It must be put on an Alignment machine. Another area which can tilt a rear wheel is a severely worn spindle or wheel bearing.

This would mean the rear strut may be properly in place, but the spindle and bearing inside the rear brake drum or rotor has too much play and is allowing the wheel to tilt. You would hear a loud grinding noise if the bearing is bad.

I do not want you to ignore getting your car checked, but a complete answer includes vehicles which have the rear wheel construction built to allow for the rear wheels to flex in and out depending on terrain and load. These would be the cars where if you jacked them up, the rear wheels would not come down straight. It takes a few miles before the parts level out.

You should take the weight off the one wheel and see if there is play anywhere. The struts can be shimmed and the shims may have fallen out. You may have a rusted strut tower. Once you assure yourself the car is safe to drive for Alignment, thats the next step.

Thanks for using Fixya. I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

did you hit a curb or pot hole on that side? this can cause the leaning wheel. also if the camber shim or adjustment is loose will cause it also. no brakes sounds like a brake fluid leak if you talking about the same side or if its both sides it could be the master cylinder.
