Default Bottling from leaky keg - Need to resugar?

I filled a couple of three gallon cornys and one five gallon, then force carbed.

Got the weird force carb flavor (why do I always do my research AFTER I take action?) and also discovered that the cornys are not sealing well / holding CO2 pressure around the main seal and the QDs.

It seems logical to get out of the cornys and into bottles as a first step.

One of the three gallon cornys was filled a couple of weeks ago, will I need to resugar?

As for the CO2 force carb flavor, what's my best tack for dealing with that?

As a second time newbie, all advice appreciated - large volume of beer for me and minor panic...
