1 - Not sure about recommending a running club as I am not a member of one but there are lots in Belfast.
2 - Plenty of decent long run's close by, I am on the Donegal Road and either do my long runs past your's and up through Belvoir and down then Ormeau Road. There also a nice loop past Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon park and back along the A1. The Lagan tow path is also very popular for long runs and is nice and flat.
If you need hill work I would suggest heading from shaws bridge up through Belvoir its only about a mile away from you are or if you want real hurt like hell hills you can run up Divis/Black Mountain.
Also you are close to 3 parkruns, Queen's Parkrun, Falls Parkrun or Ormeau Parkrun. They are definitely worth checking out.
3 - I am starting training for the Belfast marathon soon and will be doing my long runs Sunday morning if you ever fancy a few miles.
There's definitely some great runs in Belfast.
