when I try to add Include an Action, for some reason it removes all my devices from home kit EXCEPT the action I included


I'm not sure what you mean. You add an action to the HomeBridge server and then it's the only thing showing? If that is the case then it could be that your HomeKit database itself was corrupt and when it saw the new device it only showed that because it thought the rest were gone.

is there a way to save the HomeKit configuration so that when devices are removed, they reappear in the same place and with the same names I renamed them in HomeKit


This is a long standing problem with HomeKit. If the database goes south, which can happen, then you have to essentially start over again. I've always been shocked that apps that have full access to HK, like Eve or Home, don't have a means to back that up since they can read it. I've thought of writing an app specifically for that purpose. If you have this kind of issue then it is best to remove the HBB server from HomeKit and re-add it.
