Procurve Switch 5412zl routing port

I have a Procurve 5412zl switch on which I enabled routing. It is my central switch. I want to set it as the gateway for all the Vlans. A sonicwall connected to the main switch provides internet access for the network.

I have 2 problems:

1- I want the DHCP requests for all Vlan (except VLAN 10) to be redirected to the Sonicwall. I plan to use ip helper-address. Hope it's gonna work. Do you have advice about this?

2- I want the users to be able to access the internet (from all Vlans). I don't know how the configure the link between the switch and the sonicwall. I tried a configuration with "no switchport" in Packet Tracer and it was successful. But this command doesn't exist for HP ProCurve...

Asume sonicwall LAN-IP

On 5412zl
Vlan xxx (with link to sonicwall)
IP Address
UNTAG A1 (A1= asumed link to sonicwall, Untag accessports also)
TAG ports to 2810's
Vlan yyy
Ip address
IP Helper-address (IP of DHCP=server=sonicwall)
TAG ports to 2810's
UNTAG accessports
IP ROUTE gateway)
IP ROUTING (all vlans with IP are routet)

Add some static routes on sonicwall like
Ip route  via gateway (to vlan yyy)

Clients should have the IP of own vlan on the routing switch as DGW and also have the same netmask as in vlan.
