Biceps: Very difficult to repair after 2 years. Usually requires grafting. First step would be a MRI to see what the status of the tendon and muscle are.

Depends: Depends on if it's distal or proximal. If distal, and the laceratus fibrosis is still intact, there is a remote chance that it may work, but likely not. If it's complete with torn laceratus with retraction, you can tenodese (tie down the tendon) to the brachialis muscle, but this is purely cosmetic and essentially 50/50 chance that will work.
