Advice needed for PMV 300 visa application. This is kinda long, sorry


Please forgive me if any of what I am asking has been asked before, I did a search and did not find the info.

I will be submitting my PMV application shortly.....gotten all the photos etc. together to upload. I have a few questions though about some details.

1a) The written statement from my partner and I regarding the progression of our relationships. Does this need to be signed and witnessed or is just typing a document each and attaching sufficient?

b) My partner was upset with me for including some uncertainty I had about the future of our relationship. It was a period of time in 2015 where I left Australia and we technically broke up due to it not being known when I would return or what we could do to be together since we hadn't lived together yet and were not thinking about marriage at that point. However, we kept in touch daily, rekindled our relationship and he came to Canada for a month to visit only three months after I left. I then came to Australia a little over a month after that and then the relationship became serious and I included these details on the letter. My question is do they favor people painting what sounds like a perfect fairy tale story or do they like what sounds realistic and more so just stating facts rather than being like "my heart skipped a beat the instant we met.....being apart was the most pain I have ever endured, blah blah" They would see from photos that I included of screen shots from our daily chats that we always tell each other I love you, we call each other stupid nick names and use little heart emoji's and stuff all the time. I just think it's dumb to write a romance novel re: our relationship, everyone has doubts right?

2) Do we need our celebrant selected straight away and their details on the signed NOIM form or is ok if we just have it signed and witnessed by one of us? We have a deposit down on our wedding venue already, just hard to select a celebrant without me being able to meet any of them face to face.

3) I have an issue with an 9 months :/ It was stupid I know, but I literally forgot to apply for my next visa, a student visa within the first three months...d'oh! I had studied in oz previously and did everything right, applied for the visa shortly after I arrived in the country. I got too caught up in the excitement of being back with my partner and moving in together and kept putting it off because I was thinking "whatever, the terms said I can study for up to three months on this anyway and I remembered the the exit/re-entry thing incorrectly as being six months instead of three so when I got around to applying online I couldn't and when I looked further into it realized what happened. Immigration was not much help when I called them, basically, stating if I showed up I would be put on a bridging visa and expected to leave in a couple weeks. Was told I could apply offshore on grounds of compassionate and compelling circumstances but would likely be rejected and have to wait three years to return. Given I paid my fees and just committed to a lease and started a new life, didn't want to miss out on my study and the uni seemed to not even give a crap that I didn't have a visa (they emailed me about, I told them what happened, they emailed back saying they would try to assist me but I didn't proceed because of the conversation I had with DIBP and I never heard a word about it again, DIBP was never waiting outside my classes to haul me away)

Anyway, my question re: this is, do I need to include a statutory declaration about why I overstayed, pointing out I had been there before and was compliant with my visa terms? and maybe include that if they want me to pay what I didn't for studying the last time I will pay them what I owe? I could go as far as include uni transcripts to show I was a genuine student.
