6yo and lap baby - carryons, strollers, and carseats, oh my!

I'm trying to figure out exactly what carryons I can bring, what I can gate check for both kids, and what I will have to pay to check.

My 6 yo has special needs so we will be bringing TWO strollers on this trip, though I really only need one at the airport.

I also have TWO carseats. The 6yo's is not airline compliant. I've toyed with getting a backless booster if that will make gate-checking and/or using it on the plane possible and easier.

Will they let you gate check a stroller AND a car seat for a 6 yo with a paid seat? Will he still get to bring his own carryon and personal item?

Will they let you gate check a stroller AND car seat for a lap baby?

The lap baby will need a diaper bag with food and diapers. Will this count as MY personal item since she doesn't have a seat? Or can I bring my own personal item as well? And what about a carryon? One for each of us, or just one for me?

Thanks!!
