I agree with my colleagues. It looks like the best option is to withdraw the pending case and file a nunc pro tunc case. Because it will be at the discretion of the USCIS, the nunc pro tunc case should be prepared by an experienced immigration attorney on behalf of the company.
I agree with my colleagues. There are a lot of different factors/considerations that go into determining an appropriate fee for deportation cases. And no once can give you a quote on a public forum like this. But feel free to email me or give me a call to tell me more about your case.
As an F-1 student, you're only allowed to be a passive owner. This means you're not allowed to perform any work for your company nor have a title like "President." As a passive owner, you can invest money in the company but that's about it. You need to hire someone to run the company until you get your OPT.

I agree with my colleagues that questions you are asking are highly technical questions that are difficult to answer on a general forum like this. Each case is different and the strategy varies depending on the facts. I recommend that you at least set up a consultation with an experienced attorney, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to go over the details.
EB-2 PERM is a complicated process that, if successful, gets you a green card at the end. It's hard to compare that process to H-1B, which is a simply a non-immigrant status. No one can possibly describe the whole process for you on this forum or tell if you'd be eligible for EB-2. But to answer your other question, yes the employer will have to advertise the position and conduct the recruitment required by PERM regulations.
