I'll take the easy one first. It seems when you are eating, that he jumps on you and barks that he wants some of your food? if this is the case, and the behavior is unwanted you need to change the behavior. for me here's two options:
1) ignore, meaning leave the dog's presence. don't say anything just leave, every time he does it.
2) give him a time out 3-5 minutes, a separate room away from everyone else, door closed. do this every time he does the unwanted behavior.
