I can't use the number 2 here?

You're technically right, but then again, we really should practice spelling out numbers in words.

English grammar typically requires you to spell out small numbers like this regardless.

"Need to drink" is correct. But " need drinking" is wrong?

The structure "need +V-ing" is equivalent to the passive form "need to be + past participle".

E.g:
This car needs cleaning = This car needs to be cleaned - Chiếc xe hơi này cần được lau chùi.

I see beautiful small waves flowing when hearing this spoken sentence.
