Perhaps because no-one on this list knows the answers to what you are

Sounds like you may have mistaken this mailing list for payed customer
support list?

Please bear in mind that wpa_supplicant, hostapd, hostap-driver and
hostap-utils are all open source software projects, primarily
supported by volunteers in their spare.

In my experience, not many people use Ad-Hoc wireless networks at all
- and very few of the people who do use WPA.

Or you might do it the open-source way: You have the sourcecode for
all this software - there's no better way to learn how software works
than reading and understanding the source code.

This is a perfect opportunity for you to learn how it all works and be
able to give help and support to other people on the mailing list.
