Nothing special to do.  File the I-130.  You will need your passport later to apply for the VISA.

Asylum is legal temporary residence so yes you can interview there.   None of this means much now.  First file the petition to get things going.

Thanks for info but Canada will not give back the passports before 3 years as they just give refugee travel document after 2 years And the CR1 process will not take more than 2 years max from Canada so in all cases I will not have my passport no matter how I delay the CR1 process

Contact you Embassy to find out the process to get a new passport?

Not sure but it may be possible to put a visa in a refugee travel document, but yes the CR1 process may well take more than two years meaning it will be an IR1 process in the end.  There is such a backlog now, that it is impossible to predict how long it will take.  Even so, you definitely can make the process take as long as you want, including 3 years or more.
