Present Perfect is used to say that an action happened at an unspecified time before now. The exact time is not important. You cant use the Present Perfect with specific time expressions such as: yesterday, one year ago, last week, etc. You can use the Present Perfect with unspecific expressions such as: once, several times, before, so far, etc.

the present perfect is used for emphasis. Something that happened already but affects the present. example "I have checked a million times but cannot find the error in my calculation" . "I have never seen that before."

past simple- work completed at a particular moment. present perfect- work was started at a particular moment, now is completed at present moment. ( transient work)

if you are saying "i lived there for 2 years" that implies you don't live there anymore, but by saying "i have lived here for 2 years" you're saying you still live here, since "here" means the place you are at now, if any of that makes sense to you

and "there" refers to a place you are not at
