It should be fine as long as the snow plow is made for your model mower you also might want to look into tire chains for the rear. One thing the plow will not work good for is wet or heavy pack snow but if you keep up with the snow it sould be fine

Sounds like the rings are worn and letting oil escape past them into the cylinder head. After all, it's been in service a long time. There are several options, including a rebuild with boring out the cylinder and put oversize rings in, buying a new engine and replacing the old one, or just buying a new mower.

Check the inline fuse first. If good, disconnect the small wire plugged into the bottom of the solenoid and hook a test light to it. Lock the clutch/brake pedal down and turn the key to start. If it lights up, replace the solenoid.

The best advice here is to put your battery on charge, and, while it is charging, remove each connection, and clean the terminals back to "bright and shiney". The clicking noise is probably the solenoid trying to pull in to provide power to the starter. There also sounds like the comnnection to the starter needs to be removed and cleaned. If this connection is dirty or loose, it can arc and smoke without cranking. Also, if the terminals at your solenoid are corroded, the motor cannot recharge the battery on the run, and loss of power to the battery will result. Clean your connections, and try again!
This should correct your issues. In extreme conditions, it may be necessary to replace your wire from the solenoid to the starter, if it is significantly deteriorated, but I'd clean it all up first.
Best regards, --W/D--
