Vent distances


Nightmare in my house! Crappy shower lead to a rip out, wife wanted a tub so I looked under the subfloor for support and.....
Framing wise- whoever plumbed this cut 3x7 inches out of the 10" joists (2) with 15 foot span! Yikes (this is fixable now that all drywall below is off). But I discovered the rest of the plumbing issues. House is 18 years old- 2 story.
One rise, serving one and a half bathrooms, comes from basement up to 2nd floor joists- 90's and travels 12 feet to a 3"Y off to a vertical 3 to roof, and straight to a bath, shower and toilet. Shower and toilet are within vent distance but the tub is 12 feet+. In this case,I am curious as to the vertical to horizontal run. I am accustom to a vertical stack with runs off of it, not a rise-then 12 feet horizontal then rise to roof. What would be the rule here? (revent or something else or is it all legal??).
Another run that serves a toilet and sink, again comes from the basement 90's at the 2nd floor travels 10 feet to the 3-3-2 (sink) and continues to the toilet. No vent at all. I assume a vent is necessary????!!!! If so, could I run a T up 7 feet across the wall and into the other vent. Too close to eve to just run straight up). Is there a formula to vent size in regards to appliances. I this case all in, there is 2 toilets, 2 sinks, 2 tubs (after switching shower to tub). Clear as mud??

Any info will be appreciated. Also, I really want to rip the county apart for passing the original inspections of this!

And I forgot, the entire 3" line is level- not even close to 1/4 per foot.

Nice joist cutting- keeping in mind this is a 15 foot span. The other joist that was cut is worse!

Yellow glue- I was thinking home depot- but that would be orange

I do have to rip out most of the plumbing to get the new joists in. For reinstall I am concerned about the distance from where this pipe Y's and goes up to the roof and where it turns down to basement (12 feet). This kinda seems like a wet vent but there would be a max distance would there not? I could install a T closer, which would go into a wall then tie back into the vent above all connections (revent I guess).
Also, curious about trying to tie the other run into this vent stack as well. I am curious as to the formula used to determine vent size for appliances. In this case it would be one toilet and one sink tying into the line with one toilet, one sink and 2 tubs. Would a 3" suffice?

Then ht big question, is it legal to throttle the hacker, and the county??

Yellow ABS glue is the standard in Canada. It would be odd for me to see any other colour.
