Me and my brother who leads (Bramerica) want to both be in the WA, but we don't want to be banned forever, we have the same IP but different emails can we both join?

This isn't the right place to ask it, you'll want Moderation Forum, but I'm quite sure their answer is going to be "no". I mean, anyone could make two different accounts with different emails and pretend to have a brother.

You can take turns being in the WA, just make sure the other has resigned before you sign up. Also, you only need a WA account for endorsements and proposal submissions. You can partake the debates and draft proposals without being in the WA. :)

Congrats! As a WA member, you now have the right to vote on WA proposals and, if you have two endorsements, to draft and submit your own legislation. The etiquette for legislators is to read the proposal rules and to post proposal drafts in this forum for several days or weeks of public comments before submission. Endorsements are regulated by regional governments according to their own needs and desires.

Is it okay to use a nations post in a draft against them in a different draft?

As long as you don't change the content, I suppose it's all right. You should include attribution, i.e.

You can, since you are a WA member and have at least two endorsements. I would recommend against it until you've posted your draft publicly in this forum and gotten feedback over the course of a couple of weeks on how to improve it and make it best fit the existing body of laws.

If you must submit something, you can do it from the General Assembly (or Security Council, if that's your poison) Proposals page.

Endorsements

I would like some of you to endorse me, as I am creating new proposals, some of which are helping to the world of NationStates, thank you.

First, you need two endorsements, which you're not going to get in your current region. Second, it's strongly recommended that you draft proposals in this forum for several days or weeks before submitting them for delegates' consideration. Proposals that do not follow this norm fail at least a hundred times more often, usually because of GA rules violations.

Is it considered ICly reasonable for a non-WA nation to still have an ambassador to the WA to discuss drafts, or would the ambassador be shoved out since they really don't have a use?

There is no requirement for GA forum participants to be WA members. My nation hasn't been a member in about a decade. As for the IC aspect, it isn't regulated, but I'd be surprised if people got bent out of shape over a non-WA Ambassador.
