Thank you for your question. It is not permissible to eat meat which has not been slaughtered according to Islamic law, except in a situation of starvation, where there is no alternative (no other food at all) and at that point a person is allowed to eat only the amount that is necessary for survival. In Western countries this type of situation is not usual and there are plenty of alternatives to eat such as fish with scales, prawns, vegetables and other types of carbohydrates (bread, rice, pasta) and so on. 
 

May you always be successful

Yes but with conditions. It becomes Halal if you catch it or if it has been caught by a Muslim. It is not allowed to eat it if it died before catching it. Small locusts which can not fly are not allowed.

This is mentioned in many books of Shia and Sunni scholars.

It is mentioned in Saheeh Bukhari , Hadeeth number 5176 narrated from Ibn Abi Awfa. Same Hadeeth is also mentioned in Saheeh Muslim, Hadeeth number 1952.

Kosher food can contain ingredients of animals which are slaughtered according to Jewish way. 
If any food prepared by Jewish person does not contain any Kosher animal ingredients and does not contain Najis materials, then it will allowed to consume it.

If you have trust (itmi'naan) in the reliability of the label, and its authority, or if it comes from an Islamic country, then you can consider it to be halal, and there is no need to go into detail to check further. 

And Allah knows best.

Haraam sea food is not allowed to be eaten but it is not Najis, that is why, Halal food cooked in utensils that were used for Haraam seafood is allowed.

This is only for the non Halal seafood because it is not Najis, otherwise, every non Halal food like meat, chicken etc is Najis and utensils used in cooking it become Najis and must be made Taahir before we can use it in cooking.

It is good to mention that non Halal seafood includes every seafood except scaled fishes and prawns.

Usually, supermarkets in non Muslim countries sell variety of items which are either allowed or Haraam. The money earned from selling the Haraam items is not permissible while money earned from selling Halal items is allowed. Try to know the ratio of it as much as you can.

You need to avoid using the Haram part of the money as much as you can.

If you are sure that a part or percentage of the income is from unlawful source, the situation can be :

A. If you know the percentage or quantity of the unlawful funds, then you must take that unlawful part away and give it back to its real owner or if the real owner is unknown to you then to give it as Majhool Al-Maalik (funds of unknown owner) which is given to the Marje' of Taqleed to distribute it among the poor on behalf of the real owner.

B. If you do not know the exact percentage of the unlawful money or items, but you estimate it to be less than 20%, then you must pay the Khums of the whole amount, which will make the remaining amount allowed.
