If you do not have a valid passport, it is VERY unlikely that you'll be permitted to enter the country.

No problem regarding passport

We live in Fort Erie so we were able to ride across and didn't have to worry about parking. I would check with Niagara Parks to see if they have limits on the various parking areas they have near the bridge. They might have suggestions too.
The bridge crossing is easy. Just press the button on the customs (US) building and they'll talk to you. They don't have someone at the gate, but will send someone down.
Once across the bridge you connect to the river trail by going North and crossing to the West until you hit the trail (very close) head North and eventually you'll hit Tonawanda and will find the trail. We took Amtrak back which worked well. It's easy to pick up the return trail from the Exchange St. station
