Default FSW Express Entry advice

apologies if someone has already asked this (I was looking but could not really find something like this).
I have a few questions regarding Federal Skilled Workers program. We received an invitation to apply on the 10th of April, unfortunately it was cancelled around 28th of July. It happened because we had not received police certificate clearance from US by the application deadline. We provided the letter of explanation that we have applied for this clearance and told that we would upload it as soon as we get it. Unfortunately, few dates after police clearance arrived the application was cancelled before we had any chance to send it.
We have appealed via Case Specific Enquiry and sent the police clearance along. But on the 17th of September they said they would not reopen our case saying that the reason for it was already given first time they cancelled it.
Now we have decided to apply again and we are now waiting for another invitation to apply. The questions are:
1) Some of police certificates from various countries are now about 6 month old -how long are they valid for?
2) Medical certificates would be about 5 months old - is this still fine or we need to obtain new ones?
3) The company of the principal applicant does not give referral letters in the format requested by FSW Program. We can provide several documents from the company, including payslips, employment verification letter, employment contract, job descriptions from web adverts and company website which sort of cover all the bits of information requested by them for employment. But we do not have all of that in the form required by FSW Program, i.e. in one reference letter. Last time our application was rejected on the basis of the missing police certificate only, therefore, our employment documents might not even have been assessed by them. Would such documents be sufficient for them?
4) Dependent candidate have worked for two companies which no longer exist (they were quite small and we cannot get in touch with their owners anymore). Last time we provided declarations from former colleagues from each of them. Is this OK?
5) We have received a letter of interest for provincial nominee program Ontario. Our score is already 477 - is it worth to apply for Ontario program as well? My understanding is that it is only going to give us 600 extra points. Is this correct?

Thanks so much for reading all this and for your help!
