1. I would like to know what these numbers represent on top of the measure, 1 and 2.

The bold lines are used whenever the repetition marks are used, eg. they separate sections that should be repeated.

The lines with numbers are voltas - when you play the section for the first time, you use the measure with the first volta over it, when you repeat the section, you play the measure with the second volta over it.

Cheers!

Love this piece.  I think it was the first piece I learned at a young age where I really felt like I could emotionally connect to the piano.
