    I would add Na2CO3 solution to precipitate PbCO3 and generate NH3 gas and gently boil the mix and collect the evolved ammonia in dilute HCl solution. NH4Cl can be isolated by vacuum distillation of the water and excess HCl. Filter and wash the PbCO3 and treat with HCl to convert to PbCl2. Neutralize the carbonate-NaCl solution with HCl. Evaporate the water to isolate NaCl. You will have made some extra NaCl.
