Had the same codes on my truck. cat converter was plugged. I was told to take the cat off and gut it, then put it back on and it would run fine, but that didn't work. You need a new cat. Might want to replace the o2 sensors before and after the cat also. Hope this helps.

oil is non conductive so I doubt that's the problem, but the oil leak should be fixed to reduce problems down the road.
as for the misfire could be a couple things, fouled plug(s), a plug wire(s) that has cracks, or even valves that are not seating which i doubt from your explanation.
I would change your plugs and wires first, and fix oil leak. if this does not fix the issue there are other things going on.

do a leakdown check, you may have a valve that is leaking
I am not up to date on that motor but if it has a distributor cap the terminal for that plug may be tracking inside the cap or it may be cracked and causing it to short and creating the miss
hope this helps in some way

Ok the melt down on the wire harness may have fried other components along the way.... I would even suspect the BCM being toast at this point.... better have someone run a real good scan on it and give you a print out of the possible causes before you even attemnpt any further investigations of component guess work...this is not something that is easuily rectified.
if you have a tech in the area that is very good electrically he may be the savior you will be realying upon.
Hope this helps.
