Why does "meşhur" have both a ş and an hour right after? Does it have something fo do with Arabic origins of the word?

In arabic the word is "mash-hor" , so we pronounce "h"

If I can understand your question, yes it is Arabic, مشهور. Google translate to Arabic.

As someone else explained in another thread, popular is being liked by many people, whereas famous is being known by many people.

Stevie Nicks or Duo?
