    2. Ok this one might take a bit longer. These words can, and often are, used interchangeably in everyday speech. However, “standard” means something like the ‘traditional/proper/usual form,’ while “average” means something like the ‘most common/usual form’ (“average” also technically has a math definition —like if you get 9/10 questions on your test, your test average is 90%). So, you would say “the average height of a woman in America is 5’4” as of 2019“ & “a standard Christmas meal in America is turkey”

    2. Both would be understood by a cooperative reader/listener, but "lowered (someone's) standardS FOR X" (where X is something that can be judged as being good enough or not by some criteria) is far more common (looking at the corpus of contemporary American English, and Google's n-gram viewer). "Standards" plural is more common than "standard" singular, and "for" is more common than "on." Indeeed, "standards on X" occurs mainly in sentences where X is not a thing being evaluated, such as "they imposed their standards on someone," where the "on" is due to the verb "imposed" -- which is not the meaning you want. (Or in sentences like "they based their standards on old-fashioned ideas," where the "on" is again due to the verb, and not referring to something about which some standard is being set, which is your case -- and in which "for" is the usual preposition.)

    2. They are quite different things. Standard has a very wide meaning. Usually it means something having basic "quality" or being "normal" or "average." So if the standard grade for passing an exam is 50, we say 49 is below standard (it's probably a fail). Anything above standard is usually a pass. Criterion is the means by which a standard is judged. So, in the last example, if you want to know how many students passed, the obvious criterion would be the grades of the students. The plural of criterion is criteria: there can be many criteria in deciding what is the standard.

It should say something like this: "Be it in books or in oral legends, the lessons are the same."
