Questions about conversion

Dear Rabbi

I have three questions to the synagoge service:

1) I asked myself already a lot of times, are converts allowed to wear a tallit during the service (reform / conservatives, masorti / orthodox) ?
When other Jews wear it, you should once Jewish. You are as Jewish as anyone. Not all reform wear them
2) Are converts allowed to touch the Torah when she is passing around, if the answer to my first question is yes, with the tallit, if no, with the prayer book (reform / conservatives, masorti / orthodox) ? yes as others do
3) Are converts allowed to do alliyot in the service (reform / conservatives, masorti / orthodox) ? for sure

once you convert you are as Jewish as anyone
