You're kidding, right? Sounds like you should hire a plumber as you have no idea what you're doing.

2 toilets
2 vanities
1 shower 1st fl
1 tub shower 2nd fl
Run the toilet vent that way up over across to top plate to 6" above flood level rim of highest fixture on 2nd floor. Run vanity up thru top plate and connect to vent stack with an inverted fixture cross at same location as toilet vent. The shower on first floor vent needs to come up thru inside wall and in attic connect to vent stack.

Or you can wet vent the toilet on first floor via the vanity on first floor.

Hope this helps.

We'll gladly give you some guidance but we need more info.
Can you upload some pictures of your current work? Some one might photoshop some pipes in for you

How do you expect us to help you when we have no idea of your bathroom layout, Your entire house layout. Hire a plumber get the permits and get inspected. Doing it half A@@ed only kills the value of your house.
