Have your mower running in park
pull the wire off off the solenoid if it is working correctly your mower will shut down less than 10 sec.
if not then it will have to be removed and inspected
sometimes the plunger gets hung up with dirt and or rust and or moisture
remove it and free it up manually and retry when you see it is not stuck anymore and operates without sticking

If you have two wires coming from under engine shroud, a black and red, plugged into a connector with a white and black wire going to the mower, It's a Dual Circuit alternator.

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....
I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.
What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.
