i've heard rumors recently that the cn might buy the ex nkp from buffalo to cleveland, and then from cleveland to chicago they would have trackage rights on the ns chicago line aka water level route. is there any truth to it or not?

Highly Doubtful
I think it may be possible that NJ Transit might not be the perfect, infallible organization that most people assume it is.

It may not be probable, but I'll bet you a good sum that CN would love to have it. They may be trying to argue for rights to run on the NKP in order to connect the BLE to the rest of the system.
