I live in Illinois, can I go to other local field office other than the one in Chicago to hasten the filing processing time. I heard the DC office is faster
No. See instructions for the I-130 petition for joint filing with I-485. All such petitions are filed with the Chicago Lockbox and any interview will be at the local office where you reside.
No, you must file your you application for adjustment or status where the instructions on form I-485 indicate.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
No need. All marriage based green card applications from anywhere in the US must be filed with the USCIS NBC Chicago lock box.
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known.

Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
Sorry, but you must file as indicated in the instructions, no exceptions.
