    Answered . Whether you are eligible for EB-2 or EB-3 category depends on the job offer, it's education and experience requirements and whether or not you'll qualify. Just note that you cannot use the experience you gained with the petitions employer, as the law views that as "unfair" to the US applicants for the same job.

    If approved, you'll get a permanent green card status with no conditions. The card itself will be issued in 10 year increments, but you'll become a citizen in much less than that.

    Answered . A lot of information is required before it can be said what category you would qualify for i.e. EB@ OR EB-3. In fact it is your employment position and employer requirements that determine this and how the employee qualification matches that requirement. So, being overqualified for a position is no benefit to the employee and being under qualified could actually have a negative effect on the approval of the petition. I hope you consult an experienced attorney who can advice you on whether your position is suitable to the appropriate category.
