: what laws are there regarding apartment entry while I'm not there.

Generally, the landlord can enter the apartment for maintainence or repairs, or to respond to an emergency. In this case you don't know if it was the landlord who entered your apartment, but it any case, it is not a permissable entry. You can document this with the police if you wish and consider surveilance options if this type of mysterious entry continues.

: Am I allowed to have anyone I choose live with me.
: What is the limit of how many people can live in a two bedroom apartment?
: I live in Las Vegas, Nevada

You'll need to check with your lease for these issues. If the lease doesn't cover these issues, then check local laws. New York City law allows one roommate but city health code sets common-sense limits on the maximum number of occupants in apartment based on square footage. Las Vegas is undoubtedly different, so check your local code.
