There is not enough information here to determine your eligibility for LPR. Meet with an immigration attorney to review all of the facts.

As the others have said, yes, you can become a permanent resident. The question is which process you must follow: adjusting status or consular processing in your home country. One is longer, more expensive, and more difficult than the other, but they can both result in permanent residence. Speak with a lawyer in your area for assistance.

If you cannot adjust status because you entered the U.S. by sneaking across the border, then you will need a waiver. Consult an immigration lawyer as soon as possible.

Depends on if you entered the US legally. If so then yes you can adjust. If not then you will need a waiver. Consult an attorney.

You need a lawful admission or parole to be eligible to file for adjustment of status.

Yes, but whether you entered the United States legally or illegally will determine how you can process for your green card. You should contact an attorney to evaluate your case. Your attorney will also need to look into your current status because there are many different ways you could have received deferred action.

You need to determine if you are eligible to adjust status or must apply for an immigrant visa from outside the US. Please consult with an immigration attorney to answer these questions.

Yes provided you qualify for a waiver. You are eligible to file the waiver from inside the USA - I-601A. You will need to be granted the waiver before you can receive your LPR status. The first step is for your husband to file an I-130.

Yes, but you will need waivers and a trip abroad.

You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
