What is meant by Vakalatnama, what is the English version of this term, and what is the purpose and procedure of filing vakalatnama? If an advocate file a vakalatnama, can his junior plead the case, or vice-versa?

Vakalatnama is the urdu term which means the a person gives power to an advocate of his choice to plead and argue his case on his behalf. The procedure for filing vakalatnama is the person signed on it and the names of advocates appear on it. Yes his junior can also plead the case or vice versa
