If I decide to call or send text messages within an app like Line or Whatsapp to someone abroad or someone who may be 30 minutes of distance from me, will I still be charged?

hi Sully,
Whatapp, Line is using data (either through cellular  or wifi) to make calls /send messages. You won't be charged for Koodo minutes, but you need to check your data usage and make sure you got enough data to cover it.

And regular text sent to someone international is all included in your plans anyways (as long as you are in canada)

In that case, If I have an At&t phone, may I still be able to use it in Canada? I dont recall an At&t company in Canada so I thought I had to change phones and services as well...

You will have to make sure AT&T unlocked the device first so it can be used with other carriers

Nope, even if you group voice call on Facebook Messenger with 50 people. But try to use WIFI.
