You should only configure one default gateway on one of the NICs (the one which connects your PC to the internet).
For static routes use the "route add" command in a command prompt window (use "route add /?" for help). To make such static routes permanent (surviving reboots), you have to add the "/p" option to each "route add" command. To check existing routes, use "route print" command.

You can't add application-specific routes. Your only (I think) option is to lower the metric for the preferred networks. Check the help of the route add command for syntax

It's Windows' role to guide layer 7 transmission through the proper route.
As I've said - either change the metric or rearrange the interfaces' priorities in the ncpa.cpl.
BTW - are these routes correct? Can you post the routing table?

Probably yes.
Please post the routing table - it'll help diagnose the problem.
BTW - what OS do you use? You may try ForceIPBind - but beware - it modifies EXEs.
