So since my first resort credit has already posted, am I correct in my understanding that the resort credit cardmember year will reset on 7/8 and I will have another $250 to spend from 7/8/19-7/8/20?
Yes, although I think the pertinent date is the account opening date.

Can I book these single nights using 95K points and then when the free nights show up call up, cancel the points reservation and re-book using the free weekend night. I believe Hilton re-releases the award space if you cancel?
You can try, it may or may not work. I would not attempt this if the award space is not available before you cancel. If award space is not available, I would call in to see if they can make the change. Note that you have to call in to make the weekend free night reservation anyway, as it can't be done through the web site.
