So here we go:
21. "Semiautomatic" means any repeating rifle, shotgun or pistol,
regardless of barrel or overall length, which utilizes a portion of the
energy of a firing cartridge or shell to extract the fired cartridge
case or spent shell and chamber the next round, and which requires a
separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge or shell.
22. "Assault weapon" means (a) a semiautomatic rifle that has an
ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the
following characteristics:
(i) a folding or telescoping stock;
(ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of
the weapon;
(iii) a bayonet mount;
(iv) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a
flash suppressor;
(v) a grenade launcher;

If I bring my rifle with AICS 2.0 with threaded barrel into NY (2 listed features + detachable magazine), I will be okay since it is not semi automatic and thus cannot be an "assault weapon"? For that matter I can have a bolt action rifle with all of the listed characteristics (except grenade launcher) I presume?

Maybe I misread, but there is some confusion here:

2. Eliminates one "evil" feature. Threaded muzzles are a "no no"
in the Assault Weapons Ban if you have grips.
Ghost Hunter's rifle is a bolt action, so there is no AWB that applies to it. Correct?

Correct. The AWB does not matter to bolt actions, only semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.
