This achievements will just require lots of practice. When starting the game, try to make a habit for yourself to rotate the right analog stick with about a 10 degree range of where you are aiming. Make your path a counter-clockwise(easter egg?) circle. When enemies get really dense at higher scores, this method will help eliminate any enemies that may not be directly at your path but still able to hit you. Also, make sure when things get dense, you are always shooting directly ahead of your ship or something will probably hit you. Always stay away from the walls. Enemies are programmed to spawn away from you but when snakes spawn, they can kill you instantly without giving you any time to get away from the wall. If you are not planning to get 1,000,000 points for that single playthrough, don't use many bombs; You need to practice for many different situations. When jacks spawn, keep doing your circular path. Plan where you want to go through the jacks, shoot there (increasing that right analog stick range to like 2x) to create a gap that you can go through. For the red things (magnets? clones of your ship? something like that...) Continue your circular path until they get close. Then, do a swift turn while retaining your main path.
When you get good enough to survive more than 600,000 points, start using bombs whenever you think you may be close to dying. Points will increase so quickly that the time between 600,000 and 1,000,000 will not seem like much due to high multipliers. Make sure you are concentrating and have no distractions because this can lead to losing your first life at 900,000 points, or when things start getting crazy. If you have never survived 1,000,000 before, try to not look at your score very often or things might seem more intense than they really are. When surviving 1,000,000 points, you will probably need to use bombs almost constantly when you get past about 700,000 points. Try to save bombs for difficult parts while still using them if you think you are even slightly close to dying.
