Do you get the reset email?I need to know how far you get if I to know if I can help.
Excellent, yes that sounds all good.
You set up 2-step, so you will need to use 2-step to authorise your device.
I have not played pokemon go yet, so I'm not sure how the game stores your profile.You are correct in thinking it might be linked with your Apple ID and might no work, but you would need to test it.
However if you just enabled 2-step then you won't need a second account.All the information you need about 2-step is here https://support.apple.com/HT204152
