    Whose mitzvah is it, father's or son's

    Isn't this the same question as for a bris? The father must do it at 8 days old or afterwards,  but if he never did, the son must arrange a bris for himself.

    3 partners in a pidyon haben

    But...can the father appoint the Cohen who receives the silver to be his shaliach to "give" it to himself? (Only 2 partners)

    Once in a Lifetime?

    Not if the father has a second wife who also gives birth to a bechor.

    We've seen that adult bechorim who never had a pidyon haben

    Must make the pidyon haben themselves once they found out it was never done.

    Can such an adult bechor make a shaliach?

    Shechechianu made for a benefit

    Both the father and  the Cohen have a benefit,  a different benefit. 

    The Cohen gets the 5 silver coins 

    The father gets to keep his son,  gets to have his son redeemed.
