I was wondering what type of white wine is recommended?

Any good quality white wine will do Michelle, but if you are looking for something more specific, sauvignon blanc or chardonnay are excellent cooking wines.

How much of the spices are you supposed to use to marinate on the pork overnight and how much do you use on the pork when you’re going to cook it

I make this all of the time I prefer using good quality beef or sometimes half beef and half pork and I make about 6 lb when I do. It's a favorite with my friends here in Florida but my favorite is using Portuguese Old spice and Pimenta Moída (Crushed Hot Red Peppers) etc
