Last we checked the processing time was 27 months, so you’ve got a lot longer to go.

Unfortunately you will just have to wait until the average processing time is up, then you can submit a Case Specific Enquiry online.
Canada doesn’t include spouses names on passports so this is likley not a problem. You just need to provide your marriage certificate (with a notarized translation if applicable).
Yeah, if you come here as a “temporary resident” you don’t necessarily need IELTS:
- You do not need IELTS to come to Canada as a tourist.
- If you get a job offer from a Canadian employer and they don’t require IELTS, you can apply for a work permit (and an LMIA) and come here.
- Some schools don’t require IELTS and you can get accepted and come here on a study permit.
In the latter two cases you can work in Canada for a year in a skilled occupation (after you graduate, if applicable) and then apply for PR that way. (At this point you will have to demonstrate your language ability, though, if you came here as a worker.)
Once you have PR just sponsor her for PR through the spousal sponsorship process. Since there are children involved this should be easy.
Actually there could be an issue. It depends whether or not you are still a permanent resident. If you never relinquished your status or had your status revoked, you are still a PR. This may be discovered during the application process. Not sure exactly what will happent then. You should contact a lawyer or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) to find out what to do.
You still need to provide the information required by the Family Information form, if you ever want to sonspor them to come to Canada later. This includes medicals.
You should tell the truth.
When you do, you and your family can expect questions about how long they plan on returning to India for.
You normally need a valid passport to “land” so you should renew your passport. Try not to hand in your expired passport if you can.
Marriage will not affect your Express Entry application.
Once you are married, you can be sponsored. But you cannot remain a diplomat for a foreign country and be a permanent resident at the same time.
