A: If you have a confirmed plan, just do what the plan says about what part of your income needs to be paid to the Ch. 13 Trustee. If your plan is not yet confirmed, you should still be able to keep your stimulus payment.

A: Chances are, your Chapter 13 plan does not address receiving a stimulus payment. That said, I would recommend that you make your attorney and the trustee aware of these additional monies and expect a response in that fashion. If you are not in touch with the original filing attorney, I would seek out a competent bankruptcy attorney to work with you on this.
