Yes you can because you won't need your F-1 anymore. The only time this could become an issue would be if for some reason your I-485 was denied you would be considered out of status because you violated the F-1. If your marriage is real and legitimate this shouldn't be an issue.See question

You are authorized to remain in the US while your I-485 is pending. Make sure that you file an I-765 to get a work permit along with your I-485. There is no additional filing fee for that. You should also file an I-131 for advance parole too in case you have to travel in an emergency.See question

My co-sponsor filed her tax jointly with her husband since they got married a long time ago. Her income is enough for me, she does not want her husband to file I-864A. Does that mean that the woman who is the one sponsoring us will file I-864 and ...
If you are not relying on the income of the husband and only the cosponsor than the husband need not file or sign anything. Although he is on the tax return you will also have to include W-2, job letter, pay stubs of the cosponsor to prove that her income is sufficient.See question

If he was born in the United States I'd post his criminal bond and get a copy of his birth certificate over to ICE immediately.See question

You will likely not have any problem but I suggest that you hire a good lawyer to attend the interview with you. Many things can go wrong at an interview and you can be taken advantage of without even realizing it. The immigration service has their own lawyers and you should too.See question

I'm separated, moved out of the house and going through divorce, I have not signed the papers yet but I need to renew my green card within a month. Will using a different address affect my application proccess?
You need to be truthful about everything on any immigration form that you file. The fact that you and your soon to be ex-wife are separated and going through a divorce makes your case more complicated but not impossible. If your wife is willing to sign the I-751 she should and you should timely file it. If the divorce becomes final during while the application is pending you would need to notify USCIS immediately. There is case law which stated that even if the parties are separated a joint petition can be filed as the present viability of a marriage is not an issue in the adjudication of a Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence. Either way this is certainly a case where you need a lawyer.See question
Can I travel outside US with disorderly conduct record which has been sealed and enter US without a problem?
Generally, disorderly conduct is not a crime involving moral turpitude nor an inadmissible offense. However you don't say what your immigration status is and it makes sense for you to have an immigration lawyer review the specific statute that you were convicted under before you travel.See question
Will I get denied for sending my W-2s with a fake SSN
While I understand what you did is common, I would never send any evidence to the government that good be used against you in the future. While your DACA application may be approved if you do send it, you could be opening up yourself for problems later on. You should discuss your case with a good lawyer.See question
