1 oz of hallertau was likely added at the front of the boil, and will probably have little to no impact on hop aroma and flavour. Regardless, it would be overwhelmed by big bold American hops in the...

Of course! No problem with trub, you might not end up with as much bottles as you expect, but it won't impact your final product much.

Just make a starter if you doubt the viability of your yeast. Unless it was actually warm to your touch it's probably not completely dead.
