It is possible to apply for an H-1 transfer with USCIS, provided the H-1 holder is maintaining legal status and fulfills all the requirements.
1. The answer is No. There is no advantage in going through for-profit or non-profit that's just irrelevant.
1. Now if somebody's H-1 gets denied for level 1 job the same employer can file for level 2. But there should be a good reason or explanation if the government asks questions like: why are we going to level 2, why did we not go with level 2 the first time around.
1. Not until a notice of intent to revoke is sent.
2. This case is going back to USCIS.
