Can you send me a test case that I can reproduce here?  If you send me
a simple restart function and the exact dumplisp command you used
which failed to restart properly, I can try to figure out what is wrong.

Are you saying that those files in your project are EuLisp source
files, as opposed to Allegro CL source files?  If so, you might want
to consider making a top-level alias like ":ecf" which would compile
the EuLisp files in the same way as :cf compiles CL files.

I assume that you want to know how to name meethods so that you can
compile them.  First, to get a list of methods for a generic function,
call clos:generic-function-methods with the generic function as an
argument.  You will get a list of methods.  For each of these methods,
clos::method-to-definition-spec will return a name that you can use
as arguments to most Allegro CL functions that accept a function name
(including compile, disassemble, fboundp, fdefinition, etc.)

In general, method names are of the form (method <gf-name> (<class> ...))

I will await your reply to deal with question #1.
