As far as I know Muawyiah killed Sa'd ibn Abi Waqas by poison, and his son was always blamed for serving the murderer of his father, anyway, what he did is not as important as what his son did.

Salam,

I don't know where he appointed him but if you doubt THAT he was appointed by him as a governor than you'll find it in Sahih Muslim.

Amir b. Sa'd b. Abi Waqqas reported on the authority of his father that Muawiya b. Abi Sufyan appointed Sa'd as the Governor and said: ...

Salam Alaikum,

I'm not really sure; because I came across a hadith that mentioned how Sa'd Ibn Waqqas refused to curse Imam Ali(as) when Muawiyah(la) told him to.

But then again, he's the father of the murderer Umar Ibn Sa'd (la)

So maybe he defended Imam Ali(as) at one point but then still served under the government of Muawiyah(la)

It was not his fault that he was father of that person.

It looks like Sa'ad bin Abi Waqqas was one of the 10 people the Prophet (saw) identified being behind the conspiracy to murder him:

 

I asked the Messenger of Allah (S) whether these hypocrites were from the Muhajireen or Ansar. The Holy Prophet (S) mentioned each of them by name and also informed me of a group regarding whom I didn’t want it to be included, so I kept quiet. The Prophet said: O Huzaifa, perhaps you have doubts about some of them, just look up.

So I looked up and saw all of them standing on the cliff. Suddenly there was a flash of lightning, which illuminated our surroundings for such a long time that I thought that the Sun was up. In that light, I recognized each person of that group and found each of those whom the Prophet had named, who were fourteen in all, nine from Quraish and five from other people.

The reporter of this narration, Ansari said: O Huzaifa, may Allah have mercy on you, please mention their names to me. Huzaifa said: By Allah, they were: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Talha, Abdur Rahman bin Auf, Saad bin Abi Waqqas, Abu Ubaidah bin Jarrah, Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan and Amr bin Aas, from Quraish; and another five were: Abu Musa Ashari, Mughairah bin Shoba Aus bin Hadsan, Abu Huraira and Abu Talha Ansari.
