Can I replace ”stands” with the verb ”has”? Are they interchangeable in this context? And how are these different?
No, you can not replace the verb "stands" with "has" here because "has" is not a verb that is used to describe someone's height. "Stands" is also fairly uncommon when it comes to describing someone's height. The most common verb to use in this context would be "is", and so the verb "stands" could be replaced with "is". Ex: The shark is 7 feet long! Ex: The basketball player is 6 foot 7.
