comment Select buildings in a html map and get osm
I wasn't sure you'd have an out of the box solution with that, but you could build something to your needs using the code referenced. There seem to be a lot of ideas floating around regarding vector tiles--it does look like MapBox will render custom ones if you don't want to wade through it all.

comment Where to get 2010 Census Block data?
I think you can still get the state files at ftp2.census.gov/census_2010/01-Redistricting_File--PL_94-171 or www2.census.gov/census_2010/01-Redistricting_File--PL_94-171

comment trying to add content to the middle of a string
It would help if you could give more detail on how you're trying to do this. In ArcGIS or another program? With Python or a different language? Using Field Calculator?

comment How do I know what direction a road is drawn in OSM?
You can also tell in Potlatch 2: when you select a way, the little helper box in the lower right will show the general direction of the way.

comment How do I load OSM vector data in QGIS 2.x?
It wasn't clear from your question what you were doing with the data once it was imported. You can of course select out whatever features you want from the data within QGIS. As mentioned above, if you know you only want certain data (and it's not in too large an area), downloading data with Overpass would probably be better, as you can pre-select for just certain features. I find Overpass Turbo to be a user friendly way to develop queries. Here's an example of all highways in bounding box: overpass-turbo.eu/s/2VX
