We don't want substances on which mold might grow and or those which prevent the house from breathing. Blown in fiberglass insulation (Atticat) was suggested, but it contains formaldehyde. Are other products safer for our health without being harbors for mold ? How important is it to block up cracks where the walls meet the floors, etc.?

Your safest way is to bring a professional in to evaluate whether you have any moisture issues, electrical problems (knob & tube / aluminum), etc... before you even try proceed...
