cortrightlaw : If a chapter 13 bankruptcy will help you keep the properties and you can qualify for a chapter 13 you can request to convert your 7 to a 13. If you did not use an attorney for your 7 you really need to go meet with one so try can look at your complete financial situation.

can i do both and what is the advantage and/or disadvantage if both are done?

cortrightlaw : You can not do both at the same time, but you can file a 7 first then a 13 after you get your discharge but this is rarely a good idea.
