comment $X$ second countable locally compact Hausdorff implies $C(X)$ separable?
It makes sense to consider the topology of uniform convergence. However, I think that topology is "too big" to be separable in general, even when $X$ is second countable and LCH.

What topology are you considering on $C(X)$? Unless $X$ is compact, the sup norm will not make sense -- you would need to restrict to the set $C_b(X)$ of bounded continuous functions on $X$.

comment Doubts about metrization theorems
To see a proof of the equivalence of the Nagata-Smirnov and Bing characterizations of metrizability, look at Chapter 4, Theorem 18 of Kelley's General Topology.

comment The image of orthonormal basis under compact operator
What characterizations of compact operators do you know? (Hint: Maybe think about the weak topology on $H$.)

comment Question about Fredholm operator
They are both complemented: $\ker(A)$ is finite-dimensional, hence complemented, and $\text{im}(A)$ is finite-codimensional, so any algebraic complement is finite-dimensonal, hence closed.
