A green card holder has almost the exact same rights as a US citizen with the only difference being that a green card holder cannot run for public office and cannot vote in an election.

How many times can I apply each year

A person is allowed to be the main applicant on one application each year, if you were to submit more than one application in a year, where you are the main applicant, you would be disqualified. The US government deploys complex software that finds and marks such applications for disqualification.

Is there a deadline to apply
