Prevailing wage request was submitted April 1. -How long from now that I can work on green card (and therefore not on H1b tied to employer)? -How long till my wife can work on green card/H4 and not need to be tied to her H1 employer?

A quick search for the priority date for EB2 Pakistan says it’s “current”. That means as soon as you receive your I-140, you can apply for adjustment of status. It takes around a year for adjustment of status to be processed. You will not be tied to your employer at this time. But people wait till approval of their adjustment of status to avoid any surprises. Since you have just applied for prevailing wages- it will take another 12-14 months approximately to get your I140, your wife can work once you have your I140 and an approved EAD based on I140. I am not an immigration lawyer or expert, just some information to my knowledge.

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left.

I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
