The no-code license allows use of all amateur frequencies and modes above
50 Mhz. This includes the 6m, 2m, 220 Mhz, 440 Mhz, and higher bands.

Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, and others. There are NO unreliable or badly made
radios on the market today, IMHO. There may be some that lack features
which you want, but they are all good.

It depends on what you are interested in. QST, published by the ARRL, is
the standard reference. It has a good mix of construction articles, news
items, and FCC updates. 73 magazine has good construction articles and
wonderful ranting editorials by Wayne Green. CQ magazine is mostly of
interest to people who like contests and awards chasing.
