White has acquired a better pawn-structure, in view of the weak isolated black d5-pawn. On the other hand, Black has
gained the bishop-pair, retaining dynamic equality.
Means Bishop-pair neutralizes worse pawn structure?

In practical terms it means something along those lines.

(though it can in this case, also be seen as contrasting the "static" and "dynamic" aspects of a chess position)

What's the difference between regrouping and redeploying and rearranging the pieces?

as in:
I should regroup my pieces
or
I should double rooks on the d-file or regroup my knight [..]
or
I can regroup my minor pieces towards my target.

Regrouping and redeploying conveys more of a sense of organisation and purpose than rearranging.

When GMs and IMs discuss games, they more often use the term "regroup" in preference to "redeploy" or "rearrange".

Another distinction is that a regroup or a rearrangement involves multiple pieces whilst a redeployment can involve a single piece. You might for example play Qa5 to d8 and then Qd8 to h4 as a redeployment of the Queen to the Kingside.

What does 'permanent static weakness' mean?
Aren't permanent and static meant to mean the same thing?

You would have to check the context. It's likely to mean that one player has three pawns and the other two.

Not quite. Permanent means something lasting a very long time. Static is something fixed or stable. I suppose there is not really much difference.

It's f2,g2,h2 vs f6,f7,h7
