What are the best options for insulation and kitchen/bathroom flooring for my home, which was built in 1926?

I have no insulation in my walls. The first floor is a brick exterior, and the second floor is stucco. I have changed my heating system from steam to forced hot air, and my heating bills are still extremely high, plus I still have problems with humidity in winter and summer even though I have a whole-house humidifier. As for kitchen flooring, it is vinyl with asbestos undercoating. My neighbor who does flooring said I could replace it myself and just spray with water while I'm pulling it up. In both the bathroom and kitchen, I need an insulating flooring since the floors are cold as well. All the rest is hardwood. Any ideas?
