Question: Why was Oz considered a con man? He was simply doing magic tricks, which everyone should know aren't real.
Chosen answer: I believe you are taking a very modern day perspective. In our era of technology, scientific advancement, and general skepticism about everything, we are pretty jaded and cynical about things like magic and paranormal phenomena. At that time and place, audiences were far more willing to accept the possibility of true magic and sorcery, and weren't as prone to disbelieving what their eyes tell them. A "con" (short for "confidence") man is one who attempts to gain the trust of another, subsequently using deception, fraud and/or trickery for their own personal gain. I don't think it's unfair to label Oz this way, particularly at the beginning of the film.
Question: Why were the carnival Strongman and the other carnival workers chasing Oz?
Chosen answer: Because Oscar (Oz) was flirting with the wife of one of the strongmen.

Oz: How hard can it be to kill a Wicked Witch?
At the beginning of the movie, Oz gives his new assistant a gift, and leans in for a kiss. Both of them are seen to tilt their heads to their right for the kiss. The scene cuts to a wider shot, just before Frank barges in, and their heads are tilted to the left.
The wheelchair bound girl in Kansas who pleads to Oz to make her walk but Oz can't help, is played by Joey King, who is also the voice of China doll who has also got problems walking when Oz first finds her, but he manages to fix her legs with glue so she can walk again.
