you have asked a number of specific question and due to the nature of these questions you are best to contact a local trustee. The reason for this is many of the answers to these questions depend on local practice and provincial laws.
However this I can tell you. Very few people who file a bankruptcy loose their house, often there is a way to arrange to keep your vehicle and only your creditors, your trustee and the superintendent of bankruptcy will be informed about you filing bankruptcy.
The best thing to do will be to contact the local trustee, sit down and together you will be able to find a way to deal with things in a manageable way.
