You can apply for a Employment Authorization Document (EAD) after you apply to adjust status (AOS). The EAD allows you to work while AOS is pending. EAD is not issued right away. You need the EAD or a green card before you can work.

can i travel back to Belgium for like a wedding ?

You can also apply for Advanced Parole (AP) that would allow you to travel outside of the US while the AOS is pending. Again, AP is not issued right away.

You need AP or a green card before you can leave the US and reenter.

Most jobs (except special niche jobs) require English comprehension. The diploma may count depending on what your major was and if your university meets certain standards. What those exactly are I am not sure.

If you dont feel comfortable with your English skills, maybe signing up for a class would be beneficial for you while you are waiting the months to be able to start working. Or, be able to buy a book to help you.

I believe Ryan answered your other questions.

You can leave the US anytime. BUT...you cannot re-enter without the AP ( advanced parole). Keep in mind that once you file for your AOS ( including the AP) it will take a few months for the AP to arrival and then a few more months for your AOS interview. You really want to be back here in time for that interview. So if you do leave, check your timing. If you miss your interview, your AP could be cancelled and that is not a good thing.

No. Once you get advance parole or the green card, you can leave the US and re-enter the US without having to obtain another visa. There is no need for you to stay in the US for two years.

As a legal permanent resident (LPR), you must make the US your permanent home. You can travel temporarily outside the US at any time.

Your LPR status is a revocable privilege to enter and live in the US. If you spend too much time outside the US or do certain acts, you could lose your status. Google "maintaining legal permanent residency" to learn how to keep your LPR status.

An LPR can remain outside the US for longer than 6 months if he/she obtain a re-entry visa. The time that an LPR is outside the US will not be considered in determining whether an LPR has abandoned his/her status. The LPR must maintain ties to the US to keep his/her status; i.e., bank accounts, file tax returns, etc.
