You don't have to replace it with the exact same rim. Your wheel doesn't appear to be anything exotic, so anything with the same diameter (700/622 bsd) and the same number of spokes (20?) should be compatible. You'll also probably want to look for something that is about the same width, although you can make small changes to this depending on your needs and ...

You do need to check the spacing between the ends of the axle (see Sheldon Brown as usual). Hybrids in particular may follow mountain or road standards for each component. It will be quite obvious if it doesn't fit though.

You should be perfectly fine, the 622 is the ERD [effective rim diameter] in mm. The other number is the inner width of the rim. What this effects is the range of tire the rim will hold. So your rear wheel will be slightly thinner, which is kinda strange but not that big of a deal. You can probably fit a 1.95" (700x50) tire on there without any issues but i ...

Simple idea - turn the wheel over in the truing stand. The low side of the rim should move to the other side. If the Right-hand side is still low after flipping, your gauge is out and needs calibrating.

My experience when a rim is advertised with an inches width [Rather than an internal diameter in MM] it's much more of a general statement. Chances are that you will be able to use the exact same tire you used before. Generally a 1.75" tire fits just fine on rims with internal widths of 17mm to 26mm with out any real hazard. If you go outside of that range ...

2.0 is the diameter of the tyre/tube in inches. So a 1.75" tyre will be smaller and slimmer, and probably a little faster. 26" is the diameter of the whole rim, but check the tyre for its ISO number to be sure. Its likely to be a ISO-559 size. answer: yes that rim will probably fit fine. You'll need to check and adjust rim brakes, or if its disc brakes ...
