how to support wall to replace bottom plate

You really, REALLY NEED to have those trusses looked at and a fix designed by a professional that is capable of evaluating them.

Have that person design a fix that you can follow, it may be that a structural filler like has been mentioned before will do the trick (I have my doubts about that).
But don't mess around with this, get the pro out there.
