No he's not allowed to come with your parents. The fastest way to bring your brother is to file for your parents asap. And when they become permanent residents, one of them can sponsor your brother since he is under 21.

I agree with my colleague. This is a serious situation, and you need to remedy it asap by disclosing your arrests to USCIS. Please talk to an immigration attorney regarding how to proceed. Keep in mind that even if you get your citizenship, it can be taken away for not being truthful in your application.
I agree with my colleagues that living separately will make your case more challenging. But based on the info you have provided, I still think you have a chance of prevailing. But the case needs to be prepared very carefully and with the help of an immigration attorney.
Both removal proceedings and request for prosecutorial discretion are very complicated areas.

You can start working for the company as soon as USCIS receives the case. For example, if you know Fedex or UPS made the delivery, it's probably safe to start working. But if you want to be extra safe, you could wait until the company gets the receipt notice.
