The short answer is no. If the medical debts were incurred post-petition they would not be subject to discharge in the current case. Also, if you and your husband are jointly liable for the childs debts, then it might be advisable to dismiss his case and refile together as a joint case so that neither of you are forced to pay the debt.

Yes. You can purchase the house while the owner is in Ch13 bankruptcy. The debtor must get permission from the Bankruptcy Court to sell it to you but that is routinely granted.
Generally that is not the case. Bankruptcy law allows you to keep most all of your personal property, including firearms, so long as the total value of the property is it not over a certain amount.
