Just means it's done! 1.023 is a little high-ish, but not really all that bad. Hopefully you hopped the hell out of it :)

Looks / sounds right on to me! I'd say it's about bottling time if it's been at the 1.013 for a few days.

I bet it will take off, I don't see how boiling that stuff shorter would have made all that big of a difference. (had to do a search to see what Malta Goya even was - never heard of it!)

You severely underpitched, then transferred off the yeast cake (most likely) before fermentation was complete, that's why the FG is so high. Airlock bubbling isn't an indication of fermentation...
