No. Your TRV ceased being valid the moment you landed as a PR, even if nobody officially cancelled it.

If you are invited to apply for permanent residence you should include your husband on your application as that way you will not have to sponsor him later.
The current processing time for a first PR Card is 21 calendar days.
Whether or not your wife can enter Canada depends upon whether or not she was included in your application. If she was, she should “land” with you.
If you didn’t include your wife in your PR application, you will have to sponsor her for permanent residence.
The moment you “land” you become a permanent resident of Canada. To become a citizen you must live at least three years in Canada as a permanent resident and meet the other requirements (citizenship test, etc).
If the last two letters are omitted due to length, that’s entirely normal. There are only so many characters available for names on COPRs and also on PR Cards.
You should include them, because bringing them here later involves sponsoring them, and that is a pain.
Your wife should help your CRS score. Officially the processing time should not change because you added them.
You will all be granted PR at once if you’re granted it.
Apply all at once. If you wait, you will have to sponsor your family, which takes a full year.
If you do not have a valid visitor visa it is unlikely you will be granted one now. If you have one, there is an issue entering Canada.
If you can indeed enter Canada, you can change your address on your application to see if they will let you submit your passport to a different office.
If you have been nominated by a province for permanent residence, part of that nomination is pledging to live in that province. That does not prevent you from travelling home for a visit but if border or immigration officials suspect that you do not actually have the intention to live in the province, they could you deny you PR status at the Port of Entry.
As long as you are in Canada, you do not need to worry about the six months validity rule.
