GC file for Parents

I have a few questions related to the GC filing for parents when the child is a US Citizen. Will appreciate any help and any inputs if I am missing something on this.

1) Can a child directly file for their parents GC if he/she is a US Citizen or do they have to go through a immigration attorney?
2) If the parents are in US, can both I-130 and I-485 or should both be filed simultaneously?
3) When do the medical records need to be submitted? At the same time form I-130 and I-485 are filed or will USCIS ask for it separately at the time of their review?
4) What if their old immunization records are not available due to fact that only few kept records of those in 1950's and 1960's.
5) I believe separate forms (I-130 and I-485) need to be filed for each parent, correct? One I-130 and I-485 for Mother and one I-130 and I-485 for Father.
6) Do all documents need to be submitted such as Affidavit of Birth since Birth Certificate is not available or just the fact that their passports have DOB is good enough?
7) Are documents needed to show that they have graduate degrees from India?

Thank you again in advance for the help!

1-130 for father filed 04/28/2021; Processing started 09/10/2021 - TSC - still waiting
I am US citizen originally from India and have applied I-130 or my father on 04/28/2021 for consular processing (father still in India) and the petition was assigned to TSC. Online it say the case is being reviewed since 9/10/2021. The processing date for TSC is 12/09/2020, so I think it might still take some time before it gets approved.

My question is does the status gets updated online when it the petition is approved? Is the approval notice sent to me or directly to my father at his home address in India?

I-130 and I-485 concurrent filing
My I-130 was filed on September 16;2020 ; It has crossed the normal processing time of Dallas,Tx and when we put our service request for outside normal processing time, we have been told that my file is located at a Federal Records center and USCIS is trying to get that file from there. We have been getting the same reply for the past three months. Is it normal ? Did anyone in this forum has the same problem.?

  I will be thankful for your reply

Reg. Birth certificate alternative for mother
I am applying for green card for my mother (Indian citizen). She does not have a birth certificate (1947 DOB) and the USCIS website also says Birth cert is not necessary for those born before 1970. However, she does have an emplyment letter from the Income Tax stating her date of birth. Is that sufficient. She is already in the US, and when we contacted the Local government for non availability certificate, they are asking for quite a bit of "you know what".
She has one elder sister who can provide affidavit for her date of birth.

Are the above two documents sufficient or should I be looking a appeasing the government officials?
Thank you
