Although I cannot answer all the questions, I'll take a stab at some that I can speak to.

Sounds like you are currently doing some web development — mainly front end or backend or both? Would you like to continue at that level in the stack or are you interested in moving either higher or lower. If it's the latter, that's something I can help point in the right direction.

I am a bit geographically constrained due to finances, how can I best handle this problem?

One silver lining of the pandemic is that most companies and communities are way more open to remote collaboration. So, I wouldn't worry too much — for now — about the geographical distance, although eventually you may find that you want to move to a more tech-centric city.
