#1 Do you have a permit for this?
#2 Not sure, have not done this before, call a real electricion to come hook this up for you.
Fine to want to save money, but playing with something that can kill you or burn your house down is not a great idea.
Just a guess, is this very old, needing to be upgraded wiring in the house?
Just wondering why such a small panel.

Don't know what the metal rod is all about but, is this a main panel or a sub-panel?

not sure what your talking about in regards to the 2 neutral bare coppers
