I would recommend you to get the BA card and get 50K points it looks like only USair flies direct.
That's the Chase BA card right? Should I 2BM with Barclays US Airways card?

So it never pays to do that method with 2 separate banks eh? What would be best 2nd Chase option, Sapphire Preferred? Other Chase cards we have at the moment are the Freedom and United MileagePlus Explorer.

Probably  Sapphire Preferred and Southwest. But first make sure to get approved for the BA, you dont have to do 2bm/3bm you can apply for one at a time the bank only do one pull.

We got the Chase United card in October and I just opened a Macys card like a couple weeks ago. Will that affect my card approval? My FICO score is 756 at the moment. What do u think?

So the advantage of the BA card is that the (50k promo now) Avios transfer to UA 1:1 and instantaneously?

I have an international flight booked with United.  The economy seats  available for my family are scattered throughout. There are empty seats together in the economy plus section.

Is it likely that prior to boarding they would allow my family to sit together in the economy plus section without paying to upgrade?

No.
