questions about present perfect tense

i have a few questions:

1) what's the difference between

- she has lived in new york for ten years
with
- she has been living in new york for ten years

2) what's the difference between

- i bought the book you recommended
with
- i've bought the book that you recommended

3) i (have or had?) seen that movie yesterday. because i just realized when i use "i have..." i rarely put any time in it.

further question will follow later.
thank you for your help.
