Wow…that is complicated indeed, props to you for keeping a cheerful sounding outlook through all of it!

Could you have your stepmom do a reading during the ceremony? Or perhaps give one of the toasts? Not sure if she would even want to do something like that, but it would be a way to involve her.

I don’t have anywhere near the complicated family situation that you do, but I have asked my step mother to do a reading during the ceremony (FI and I have each asked 2 people, so she was very honoured that I thought enough of her to ask her to do this – I couldn’t believe she’d think I wouldn’t want her involved, I love her dearly and really appreciate all she has done for my family). As another PP suggested, you could also ask her to do a toast.

ETA: To answer your question, yes she would come to the front during the ceremony. In my experience, the officiant asks the reader to come to the front at the right time and they might even announce the reading or they’ll let the reader do that.
