You need a lawyer. The OP should be consolidated into the custody case , provided they are in the same county, and even possibly if they are not. You are in over your head, however. Hire a good lawyer.

you dont get to just talk to the judge. you should get a lawyer. do a response to the petition for op. do a motion to consolidate the op and your custody motion. do a notice for a quick hearing on the op. do a motion to excuse mediation. do a motion to reinstate your parenting time. do a motion to appoint a gal or child representative.

get a lawyer. you cannot do this alone. we cannot do your job. you cannot do ours.

Hire a lawyer -- we're talking about your KID,here. Don't try to wing it on your own.

How can you talk to the judge? Show up at your hearing -- the judge will be there and you'll have a chance to talk. Be sure to hire a lawyer, first.

I can't understand the rest of your question.
