overall looks correct. except i dont understand why you wrote R2 has more acidic hydrogen, when R1 and R2 seems same to me unless you specified. Yes in acid only 1 H becomes Cl and in base all H at alpha position becomes halogenated.

Very cool, thank you.

I just meant that the most acidic proton would be the one replaced.
