Is proof of funds expected from my country of application or is it ok for me to show proof of funds using a UK account that is in my name?
there is no rule about where the funds must be held, they can be either in the UK or abroad or in both locations

If your wife was unable to travel within the validity of the vignette she can apply to extend it at a cost of £154. The Home Office says “we strongly advise that you only… apply to replace an expired vignette, when you are confident you can travel to the UK”.

Re: Do you have to leave the country if you are still waiting for the application outcome when your visa expires

If your wife applies for ILR before her current permission (visa) expires her current FLR(M) leave will continue unchanged until she gets a decision on the ILR application. This means that there is no need for her to leave the UK even if the ILR decision doesn't come through by the time her current ...

how should we correct the issue of a CoS with a mistaken SOC Code
The CoS should be withdrawn and a new one assigned once the sponsor requested and obtained an allocation.

A sponsor note cannot be used to change an incorrect SOC code
