I don't think that anyone on here can really answer your question without meeting you in person at least for a consultation. You have some very specific issues and need actual direct legal advice not general statements about the law. If people threaten or intimidate someone about being a witness though, the proper thing to do is to report them to the police.
You can hire you own attorney who can stand up for your rights, which you do have. That's my recommendation.
You can obtain your own attorney or under some circumstances ask the court to appoint one for you. You can also seek an advocate to consult with about this situation. Good luck.
