Q.
I am changing earrings from a French hook to a post. After taking off the French hook, there is a 2mm hole. Should I just glue a post back to it or fill in the hole?

Choose a flat pad earstud finding to fit the back of the entire earring nicely. Glue the two pieces together using an adhesive suited for metal. After that you can glue in a 2mm flatback rhinestone to fill the hole.
