Clutch replacement and flywheel damage , need Help

Hello guys !
First off all, my english sucks. a lot.
well , im replacing a clutch in my mini one 1.6 90hp 2005, i already take out all the parts to make the exchange , im waiting for the components to arrive (massive oil licking from the crankshaft seal, thats for sure, if you think that could be more from another place , please tell me )

My major questions are :
-Can i reuse the bolts from the flywheel ? or im gonna have some issues , like braking nuts ?

- in my haynes manual they say you need to replace the bolts from the pressure plat ? what you guys think of that. because i cant find that bolts news , only preowned---

-i really donīt wanna by another flywheel. So , can i reuse mine ? (see the photos ) ?
she has a scratch , just can feel two with my nail, and i think you can see wich ones ...

looks to me that flywheel is damaged with heat craze, should always use new flywheel bolts as stretch bolts on crankshaft to flywheel, would also check the crankshaft for movement ie lever the flywheel when fixed to crankshaft check for excessive movement should not be able to feel more than twenty thou of a millimetre end float, if a more ten that is reason it is leaking oil and destroyed the seal.
