The thicker oil will help reduce the smoke, but sooner or later, you are going to have to address the seal problem. With the kit from AGA, you can do it yourself saving lots of money.

You need to get the plastic hot enough with a buffer, to get the job done correctly. If you don't seal the lens, they will tend to look dull again. With the kit I got from AutoGeek, it takes less...

I would hate to be in the back seat alone, much less with 2 other people. This might not be the best choice for hauling the kids?

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal, it will usually kill the engine, but not the ACC. I am sure there is something in the owners manual concerning this, but who reads that thing?

Since Yorgi lives up that way, he should be able to give you his recommendations. I would leave the trickle charger on, & put the car on jack stands.
