Sorry, not enough information for me to answer.
You don’t need any ECC if you have been here less than six months on a tourist visa the rest is explained here:
The following foreign nationals must secure an ECC-A prior to their departure:
Holders of Temporary Visitor Visa (also referred to as tourist visa) who have stayed in the Philippines for six (6) months or more;
Holders of expired or downgraded Immigrant or Non-Immigrant Visas;
Holders of valid Immigrant or Non-Immigrant Visas but are leaving for good;
Philippine-born foreign nationals who will depart from the Philippines for the first time;
Holders of Temporary Visitor Visa with Orders to Leave;
Bona fide seafarers who have stayed in the Philippines for 30 days or more and has a duly approved discharge from BI.
Can’t be obtained at the airport need three deays prior and from BI office
ECC-B is issued to departing holders of Immigrant and Non-Immigrant visas with valid ACR I-Cards and are leaving the country temporarily. That is Sec 13, 13a, and PRV visa
Can be obtained at the airport on day of departure.
Hope that helps
Normally you would lose the money you paid for your ECC A, but perhaps a phone call to the BI office nearest you could elicit a refund on compassionate grounds.
Provided tourist visa remains current and legal it shouldn’t affect your passport or your relationship with BI. When you renew your visa then you will need to explain the circumstances around your non use of the ECCA.
By the way your ECCA lasts for one month so if you stravel within one month of issue you should also be fine.
Good luck with your recovery
You will need to obtain the following paperwork
TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OF PRIVATE MVS/MCS
Original copy of the Certificate of Registration (CR) or Certificate of Registration Encumbered (CRE) You need to check that the seller has full ownership of the vehicle. The CR will have Encumbered stamped on it if the vehicle is subject to a loan. Copies are not acceptable.
Original copy of official receipt of payment of latest MVUC and other fees
Original copy of the Deed of Sale/ Transfer/ Conveyance. This is is worth getting your attornet to eyeball, to ensure that they are not negating your common law rights. For example stating that the vehicle is sold AS Is when in fact they offer you a 30 day warranty verbally.

If you will have been here 6 months or more you will require an ECC. If you are leaving for good, that is with no plans to return during the life of your current ACR, then an ECCA is required The following is from the BI website
A fee of about Php 1,210 shall be collected for the ECC. “Additional fees may be charged if the foreign national is found to have arrears”, said Tan. Fees collected shall be fully accounted and remitted to the National Treasury.
Applications for regular ECCs shall be filed three days prior to departure and shall be valid for one month upon issuance. Foreign nationals must submit the following requirements upon filing of the application:
a. Application form;
b. Photocopy of passport (bio page, visa pages, latest arrival);
c. Original and photocopy of ACR I-Card;
d. Photocopy of receipt of latest visa extension;
e. Photocopy of order of downgrading (if applicable);
f. Five pieces 2×2 photo
The application form is available online
If you intend to return you will need an ECC B cost just under 3000php. You may obtain this at the airport on departure.
If you have only been here 5 months and 29 days then you will not need an ECC unless you plan to return
Hope that helps
Misdemeanors that old should not affect you. Permanency here requires a police check in your country of origin if they even show up, I would imagine they would have zero effect. So start the process and enjoy your new life.
