Assalaamu Alaikum,

1) Yes, you should perform the 4 Sunnah after the fard Salaah. In this case however, you should first perform the 2 sunnah after the fard (which is also muakaddah) and then perform the 4 Sunnah which you missed before the fard.

2) Yes, you should call the Iqamah when performing the fard Salaah at home.

3) Yes, Zakaah money can be used to pay one’s debts.
