What an ordeal this has been..lol I would only add water when the level was low. Probably every week or two, around 5 gallons. Once I hopefully get everything back to normal, should I do regular water changes? I'm starting to feel like a very poor fish care giver!

Wow, I am surprised that Oscar made it this long! Yeah you should do 50% w.c.'s once a week once you get things back under control. Also recommend gravel vacs with each waterchange. For now...50% every other day

I would get yourself some Prime as it has additional detoxifying benefits and is a better value once you factor in how little you need for each waterchange.
