In the Departurer game, two notes are played in sequence, They are named as "M" or "P" numbers, like P3 or M5. What do M and P represent?

M = Major, m = minor, P = Perfect. as in P4 is a perfect 4th, M3 is a Major third, etc.

And “ A” ? Is that augmented ?

Augmented is a type of chord not an interval.

The interval of a fifth or augmented fourth does exist, though, doesn't it?

It does. But it doesn’t appear in departurer or the other interval games hence their enharmonic equivalents

So what is the “ A” ? I’m at level 130 and the A” interval has been introduced.

Also, it hasn't been mentioned it yet but d = diminished.

Intervals can be shrunken down aka diminished and can technically be enlarged as well aka Augmented. However, this is not common at all.
