In addition to keeping the airway open, putting the cpap for a year is it going to train my brain to send signal to breathe in case of csa?

In brief: NO
But taking off some weight will help the osa.
Very few wake up dead from sleep apnea, but it increases cardiovascular risk in general. Better to train your mouth to eat less rather than expecting CPAP to train your brain to keep breathing.
