: 1) As the legal tenant of a rent stabilized apartment, am I correct in my belief that, so long as I am a tenant in good standing, the landlord must allow me to renew my lease every year or two, as the case may be?

I don't know exactly what you mean by "a tenant in good standing." The only two grounds for the landlord not to renew a rent stabilized lease are (1) personal use by the landlord and/or his or her immediate family and (2) the tenant is not using the premises as his or her primary residence. Even if you are in arrrears in paying rent, the landlord must offer a renewal lease.
