You have raised important issues. However the answers to these conflicts are very fact sensitive and cannot be answered definitely in a forum such as this. While you obviously have a lot of knowledge of the law, representing yourself is a difficult pursuit. The reason for having a lawyer represent you is not only because of the lawyer's knowledge, but also because they are are not emotionally involved. The advice of a trusted counsellor, who is not emotionally involved, is often the most important aspect of an attorney's representation. I would urge you to get competent, experienced counsel.
