The vent needs to stay vertical until it passes the heigh of the sink's flood level rim (the level of the sink's rim where water would overflow if plugged). After that height, it can be run horizontally to the vent stack. The connection to the vent stack should also be above any fixture's flood level rim. (The gray mono-spaced text is done by formatting the text as code, I've updated your post's formatting.)

comment Bar sink drain/vent
That would depend. Where I’m from, if the wet vent is 2”, it can handle a total of 3 fixture units of load in addition to the load of the toilet. A bathtub and a sink are 1-1/2 fixture units each, so in this case it would work (as long as the bathtub pipe is 1-1/2"). However, the wet vent will not act as the vent for the sink so you would still require a separate vent for the sink regardless on how the drain is connected.

comment What pipe/adapter do I need to make this sink connect to this P trap?
To clarify: you do not connect directly to the ~2" outlet on the bottom of the sink. You would instal a drain assembly the same way as you would on a porcelain sink. The nut (part RP6140 in @Tester's image) would but-up to the underside of the ~2" sink outlet. Tightening it will compress the flange to the inside of the sink. Your p-trap is most likely 1-1/4" and a 1-1/4" drain assembly would fit though the sink's outlet.

comment Why would there be hot water through the cold water side?
What was the water pressure before the booster pump? And after? Also, are there any check valves installed on the cold feeding the hot water heaters?

comment Air handler condensation draining problem
@Tester101, The trap is not to prevent sewer gas in this application. It's purpose is to maintain separation between zones of different air pressure while allowing the condensate to drain.
