Is a muzzle loader gun a centerfire gun?
Muzzle loading guns must be loaded in parts though the end of the barrel. The method of igniting the gunpowder in a muzzle loader is different than modern guns in that it uses a primer cap or pan instead of hitting primer inside of a bullet shell. Muzzle loaders are neither center fire nor rim fire.
Why is it important to ensure your muzzle loader can handle modern smokeless powder as a propellant?
not sure if this is what you are looking for but a musket is usually smooth bored meaning it has no rifling in the barrel where a muzzle loader can have rifling. A muzzle loader refers to any weapon that is loaded thru the muzzle in a simple definition and it can be either smooth bored like a musket or rifled like a Pennsylvania long rifle or like most modern muzzle loaders are today
Muzzle loader with the marking on it that says c28 jb made in Spain sn 42834 hammer looks like a flint lock that holds a nipple type cap what type of gun is this and does it have any value?
Answer yes, a muzzle loader and black powder are just two different names for the same thing. Black powder is a term that also includes a category of guns that fire black powder cartridges.

Where can you get information about a side by side exposed hammer muzzle loader that reads Spang Wallace Philadelphia with the number 4 on the side plates?
Apparently Spang and Wallace did not make guns past 1845 and also made pistols. Your gun is probably a buck and ball gun and cartridges for that type weapon can be found at http://www.iusb.edu/~journal/2000/stanage.html A buck and ball gun used a cartridge containing buckshot and a ball. Either buckshot or a ball, not both at once. And certainly not in a cartridge -- it's a muzzle loader.
Under US FEDERAL law, they can have a caplock or flintlock. They cannot have a muzzle loader that uses 209 shotshell primers (primers are considered modern ammunition) However, different states have different state laws. You will need to check in YOUR state. A parole officer would be a good place to begin checking, as would the state police.
