U can be in ur home country and schedule ur interviews to the date u like if u are not given specific date, even that u can change it.

If your c/s visa is expired, yes u can use ur interview invite mail to apply for a new visa or get an invitation letter. Once you didn't overstay in the 1st visa u shd not have problems.
