You can apply for all of them at the same time. Be aware that each may have their own issues that you should consult with an immigration attorney.

If everyone entered the US with inspection, with a Joint Sponsor who makes enough money, you should be able to fix everyone's papers. It's always smart to get a second opinion.

The cases are unrelated. Consult with an immigration attorney as to how to file for your parents, it will depend on how they entered the US. Same thing for your fiance, you can only petition for him if you are married. Whether or not he can file here in the US will depend on his manner of entry, other immigration or criminal violations.

    You can do petition for your parents and your fiance at the same time. The only issue that may arise is regarding the affidavit of support. You will be required to submit a document showing that you are willing and able to financially support your family. However, if your income alone is not sufficient, you can have a co-sponsor to supplement your income. It will be better for you to marry your fianc sooner rather than later. If he is not already in removal proceedings, he could be placed in such proceedings as a result of his arrest. He would be able to seek relief from removal through your petition for his lawful permanent resident status. It is important to remember that for your parents and husband to be eligible to adjust their status in the United States they must have been admitted or paroled into the United States or grandfathered. If they have crossed the border illegally, they are not eligible to adjust their status in the United States and would have to have their cases processed by the U.S. Embassy/Consulate in their native country.

    Yes you can do both. Just keep in mind that your income has to be able to cover all of them on the affidavit of support. So if it doesn't then you have to decide who to sponsor first.

    You can file visa petitions for both your parents and your fiance once you got married. If you fiance has already an immigration hold on him, you may want to file only a visa petition for him but not an adjustment application with it because he may be put in removal proceedings soon so that an Immigration Judge not the Immigration Service must decide his adjustment application. The DUI should not prevent him from becoming a lawful permanent resident.
