"An arguement creationist use is that the magnetic field of earth is decaying now at a fast rate"

Define "decaying." I'm not totally familiar with this. Do you mean the polarity of the entire planet is decreasing to nothing, or are you referring to the occasional effect when the polarity of the planet shifts top to bottom? If it's the second, I fail to see your point. It could be an ancient cycle easily.

"I'm not saying that comets can not become moons, but has this ever been recorded?"

I don't know if it's been recorded, however I can see no reason at all why it's not plausible. A comet can orbit a large body just like an asteroid can. Pretty much all a comet is is just an icy asteroid anyway.
