  It really depends on the program you are applying to. You can apply to PGY2 at another hospital after completing your Prelims at a different hospital. The correct answer is very program specific.

  it depends also on your visa status. if you are applying on J1 you can't repeat the year but should progress to PGY-2.If you dont have visa issues you can chose whatever suits you best

  then you can re-apply to PGY1 cat, but H1 is only for 6 years and if your residency program is 5 years and you plan to do a fellowship you must switch to J1(sometimes very difficult), get married to US citizen, win a GC, and etc.
