The oil leak is most likely your valve cover gasket/grommets along with your pvc("that plastic thing on your valve cover") and grommet.

Pics? We can help pin point your problem better.

As for P1457 that code is for EVAP system leak.

^^^get a new fuel cap! Specific to your car!

Check your distributor oring and inner seal as well. They are close to that area, and can leak down to your transmission making you think it is other leaks.

Clean clean and clean it.
The baby powder it.
Start her up and go for quick ride around the block
Once it starts to leak it will clearly show.

But most likly its the valve cover gasket or dizzy oring.
Could be vtec gaskets (yes theres 2 up and lower) you didnt say if its vtec or not.

And p1457*
Is evap.
Check your hoses for the evap solniod and check your gas cap
