I remained in the US for 4 years and left in 2022 without any removal notice from the government. My I-94 states D/S and I’m not sure if I triggered any reentry bans and if I did, if I may return to the US for vacation after 10 years?
A foreign national who remains out of status for longer than one year, and then exits the United States, is barred to return to the US for a period of 10 years. After that period, you can apply for a visitor visa at the consulate overseas.
An immigrant here on a J1 visa can marry a US citizen and adjust status to get a green card, provided that the J1 visa is not subject to the two-year home residency requirement. Counsel in any state can represent you and process the case from start to finish.

I have H1b visa but due to Covid I haven't been able to change the visa on my passport from F1 to H1b, but I have the I-797A approval notice for H1b. I'm wondering if that will be enough for applying for marriage green card. Thank you.
Your goal is to remain in status with respect to your current status in order to apply for a change of status. The approval notice keeps you in status. The marriage green card is a somewhat separate topic. You should consult an immigration attorney. best of luck.
So my wife the beneficiary have a 2 part first name. I accidentally put just one part of her first name on the i130. It’s approved and send to NVC. I want to get it corrected I have all the supporting documents. Would I have any issues getting it fixed.

The asker should retain an accountant to do her taxes and should retain counsel to prosecute her divorce. All of the legal nuances written into New York's divorce law require professional assistance. There is no way to self-prosecute without making huge, life-impacting errors.
If you are a US citizen or resident, you start by filing a family based petition for your wife and provide proof that the marriage is real, like Photos and other shared documents in the marriage. When the petition is approved, the next step is immigrant visa application before she comes to the USA.
