My colleagues are correct. Bottom line for "immigration purposes" is that your case was dismissed. Not a conviction for "immigration purposes". Will not affect your LPR renewal. Not likely affect your citizenship, although if there was an arrest you will be questioned about it. More information will be needed: exact date on incident, your complete immigration and criminal histories, exact date of the disposition of the case. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney...
Yes you can as long as the marriage is for real. You may be charged with fraud if its proven that you had a preconceived intent to stay in the US when you entered as a visitor. Do yourself a favor and hIre an experienced immigration attorney to handle the case.

If you are a US citizen, if she came in legally and if she is otherwise admissible she could adjust her status via your petition for alien relative.
As far as updating the VAWA petition, she will have to call or notify the service center.

You should contact an experienced attorney to find out what is going on. If there is an outstanding warrant it may be vacated through a motion. What you really need to worry about is the underlying charge (especially if your are not a US citizen). I always advise my clients not to offer any statements unless an attorney is present.
Yes. However, I would first try to argue that one (or even both) of the crimes are not CIMTs. This would avoid removal and/or mandatory detention.

Unfortunately there is nothing you could do (since you don't wish to follow the cancellation or consular processing route). Now IF the latese USCIS proposal becomes a reality you have a good chance to qualify. This proposal will allow persons in your situation obtain waivers WITHOUT leaving the US. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney and KEEP UPDATED with the latest immigration news.
