Why did Missouri' s application for admission to the union spark a controversy?

One controversial feature of Missouri's admission was that nearly all of the state was north of the line where slavery was supposed to be permitted by a previous agreement. Only a tiny portion ('the bootheel') was south of the slavery line, but the whole state would be admitted as a slave state. This upset northern anti-slavery advocates including Quakers, and encouraged southerners in favor of expanding slavery throughout all the western territories and states.

Why did many Southerners want to fight an offensive war against the North?

Many Southerners believed that the best way to increase the power of anti-war groups in the North was to win significant battles there in order to discourage continued attacks on the South's attempt at independence. By bringing the war to the North, it was a double attack on the Radical Republicans and War Democrats, who were already upset at Union troop losses in Southern battles, and causing such losses in their own "backyard" so to speak. Another reason was the hope that some of the slave holding Union states would join the Confederacy.

Because if California joined as a free state, then there would the North, and so the free states, would have a majority in both the House and more importantly, the Senate. This would allow them to pass anti-slave legislation if they wanted, as long as the President approved it and did not veto.
