I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
The original summons and Complaint is filed with the court. You're allowed to serve the other parties with copies. They don't need original documents. They also don't need documentation you filed in the first case if those papers aren't be filed again in this new case.
When you file the new Complaint, because you know longer have a lawyer, it will be filed as "Your Name, Pro Se". The words "pro se" let the other parties know that you're representing yourself, so it's not necessary to file something separately. Lawyers have to file a Notice of Appearance when they enter a case and a Notice of Withdrawal when they stop representing someone, but since your case was dismissed, you no longer have an attorney of record. There's no need to file anything unless you decide to hire a new lawyer down the road.
