Yes, you may have the ability for cross-charge-ability.

Talk to your wife's EB lawyer.

You can get a work permit when you file the adjustment of status. When you can file the adjustment of status depends on when the priority date becomes current. The movement of priority dates cannot be predicted. For the latest visa bulletin, see link below.
