Pool/Billiards/Push shot, bad play from behind head string and Combo question

Thank you for your quick response, much appreciated. A few last questions, does bad play behind the head string in straight pool only apply on a foul break? Bearing in mind all my questions are BCA/WPA rules. What happens also if you do hit tge rail before the rack on a break? What does the opponent get the option of?

Finally, last 2 questions, if you pot your called ball in the called pocket and every ball including opponents ball enters that pocket and different pockets do you play on if just the 8 ball is left? And last question, if you are breaking what happens if you place the cue ball in front of the headstring on the break?

Thank you :)

All aspects of the game, strategy, runs, etc. Main focus is 8ball, 9ball, and straight pool. Pattern Play, 2-way shots, kicks, banks, throws, trick shots, shot selection, caroms, league play, safety play, and more. Don't ask me about cue's, manufacturers, how much a table is worth, etc. I just don't know.
