A: Not having a supporting deposition is not grounds for dismissal. You can request one when you send in your not guilty plea. Often, a supporting deposition is the second page of the ticket, sometimes even attached to it. You could try to use the fact that the trooper said it was there but wasn't to question the veracity of the trooper at trial, but that probably will not go far.
