I'll try to start a response:

1) Coolant in passenger area is a pretty safe bet it's from the heater. The heater core is most likely but could be supply/return hoses disintegrating .

2) (See # 1) . Manifold side should be passenger side as well. Is it leaking underneath or on top of intake runner?. This could also be hoses, or engine related.

3) May simply be missing thermostat . Temp guage is one wire connection, check connections and circuit.
