Hi Laura
I am not expert, just like yourself I am also planning to apply for Skilled worker. However, in reply to ur queries:
A) It will be better if you apply from home country(Mexico) if u r currently in US and ur imigration status is not 100% ok.
B) Yes, skilled worker visa is a route to permanent resident in Canada, after u r granted visa u need to live(work) in Canada for i guess 2 years or so before becoming eligible to obtain citizenship.
C)Yes, if you are the principal(or main) applicant you can include your family members(spouse, children) in your application.
Best of Luck!

you must be legally in the US as a principle applicant to apply there.

you can include you spouse and children but not your parents.
