I have a relatively small kitchen........I think it is about 12x14. There is no natural light and I hate that. I want to add an island and place something like this facing out to the LR. The LR wall is loadbearing. Is this possible?

It is not really that big of a problem, depending on what you have and your point of view -
DIY vs PRO. With photos of elements and more info re foundation, cellar or crawl or slab, and what is above, we could say more.
This is a rental home I purchased about a year ago. None of this was seen by me or the home inspection company that reviewed the home before purchase. Any suggestions on type of
contractor I need to fix this. Can you tell me how really bad it is?

This is most likely a settling of the foundation from careless work when built. I would need
LOTS more evidence to the contrary before jumping into the drama-boat and worrying about sinkholes. There are probably ten thousand settlement cracks for every sinkhole, if not more. A good masonry contractor can fix this. A structural engineer could certify what is needed.
