You can contact these lawyers. I don't know them personally. I hope you and your family get to practice your 2nd Amendment soon..

1. depends on the felony (citizens lose rights when they commit crimesand
become convicts, although you wouldn't know it now-a-days);
2. depends on your state (you prolly want to move);
3. contact NRA;
4. you prolly want to move;
5. you really need to move......

I contacted the nra. They said it cannot be expunged. So no I am to suffer and so does my family for something that happened over a decade ago. That sucks. So looks like I cannot own any guns until my dad moves out of state and I live with him.....

Wrong on the Black powder you must still have a FOID . I took this right from the IL state police FOID site
Do I need a valid FOID card for a muzzleloader or blackpowder gun?
Yes. In Illinois, muzzleloaders and blackpowder guns are considered firearms.
What constitutes an unloaded muzzleloading firearm?
According to the administrative rules associated with the Wildlife Code, the definition for an unloaded muzzleloading firearm is as follows: "Removal of percussion cap or removal of prime powder from frizzen pan with frizzen open and hammer all the way down or removal of prime powder from flashpan and wheel un-wound or removal of prime powder and match with match not lit shall constitute an unloaded muzzleloading firearm." (17 Ill. Admin. Code, Sec 660.30)

Wow. Worse than ma. Nothing required here for them but, good luck buying powder or balls without an fid. Of course you can mold your own balls and like anything else black powder can be obtained.

I couldn't even own a muzzle loader because under federal law its still a firearm. And what air rifle would ward off an intruder?
We called the nra and talked to a lawyer he said because its a class x felony it cannot be expunged...

There are PCP air guns that fire .45 caliber projectiles for hunting. I am not into them, but they are out there (not cheap).

IL is a strange place, but I have read (not a lawyer here) that the spouse of a felon can own and keep firearms in their home IF they can show that the felon cannot access the firearms, such as a safe that the felon can't access, etc. Failing this, perhaps you could find a range/club with on-site storage?

I encourage you to move someplace a bit more free.

I think you are confusing federal definitions of "firearm" with state definitions on the BP/muzzleloader issue; it is IL that is the problem, not BATF on that issue.

Contact the IRSA (Illinois State Rifle Assn). They have a list of lawyers that they recommend.
