comment What is the iniquity of the Emorites?
With apologies and deference to Dr. Sarna, Leviticus 18:24 refers to not eating certain types of animals, there is no indication that it is a sin (עֲוֹן) for a gentile to do so. Further 20:23 does not mention sin at all, just disgusting behavior, nor does it specify the nations of Canaan.

comment Why did Yaakov give the city of Shechem to Yosef?
I'm very confused, I am asking why Yaakov gave the city of Shechem, I understand that there are commentators who explain that the word "shechem" means an extra portion, but AFAIK even they agree that the city of Shechem was given specially to Yosef. I am asking why. Furthermore I don't know where the idea that Yosef was sold in Shechem comes from, he found the brothers in Dosan

I don't understand how/why was the city of Shechem under his control? Especially since he had been living in Egypt with his entire family for years.
