Default [Q] Gesture Typing Help and others

Hi I have tried seaching on the topic and found lots of people with the same issues but no exact ways to solve. Hope one of the XDA experts can help me here.

I love the CM 10.2 though i havent tried other roms. IT makes my phone faster and not laggy as before. But there are some issues i hope someone can help me resolve.

1. Gesture typing doesnt work, There is a trail indicator but the no words pop out. keying in 1 by 1 works. Auto correct letters also work in that way. I tried changing the language and all but still doesnt works. How do i solve this? Can i download another keyboard app and will that work? Like Swiftkey? or any others ? I really need swipe typing.

2. Multi language not working? before on stock rom i could do 2 languages on the keyboard. means they auto correct taking into consideration 2 diff languages.

3. contacts/people cannot import/export to ext sd card? is this just part of the limitation of the ROM? or can workabout?
