    That plumbing is honestly just very very bad. And no it's not code compliant.

    You need to jack hammer out the drain and redo everything. It's that simple.

    You don't need to seperately vent the toilet in your drawing there. Not only that but it's an illegal flat dry vent anyway.

    You can wet vent the toilet through the sink, as long as the part of the...

    Nope you can't do that because you have a fly dry vent AND you are wet venting a fixture past a water closet. You can't do this either.

    You need to tie the sink drain into the vertical "2 vent"...

    +1 to that. It's probably the cheapest and easiest way to fix that problem.

    But if it were me I'd find a fab shop of some kind that will cut the 4 legs down for you to exactly what you need so the...

    Getting a 1/2" snake around a 1 1/2" 90* elbow is going to be tough, especially if you aren't able to spin the cable as you push on it. But who knows what's inside your walls and what fittings were...

    The ID of pex isn't THAT much smaller than...

    Why in the hell would ANYONE rund 3/8th pex to supply water to a regularily used fixture? Honestly I can't fathom running 3/8th pex to anything other than an ice maker. But it's your house not mine.
