Yes, you will have to make a new account for the web-wallet. Use this link to access the web wallet:

https://bitshares.org/wallet/

Openledger works I think but it might be something different now.

Once you have made a new account you go to settings which is in a menu at the upper right, next to your user name.
In settings you can select import keys and import your json file there.  At that point you will be asked for your password and you insert the password for your desktop client where you exported the keys.

If everything is successful you will have your old account restored in the webwallet.  You will have two accounts in the wallet.  The one you created to access the webwallet, and the one you restored from your desktop client

I just checked and the proper place to do the import under settings is "Restore/Import"

But there doesn't seem to be the option to import a .json file from a BitShares 2.0 Client. Are you sure you have a .json file?
Under the same settings menu there is the option "Backup" and this gives you the .bin file which you were wondering about. Do you have a .bin file backup from your desktop client? Is the interface of the desktop client similar to that of the web wallet? If so, you can make a .bin backup there. Or if you already have one, you can import this into the web wallet.

alternatively, since you already did the migration from 1.0 to 2.0 at some point, you might be able to simply enter your private key under Restore/Import.

This should work if you only had one account and you have the private key for that account. If you had multiple accounts in your 2.0 desktop wallet I don't think it will work. Or in other words, you would only get one account back.

Create new wallet in settings (it will be empty), make it active and import key (WiF).
For pre-2.0  key you'll need account first (empty wallet would not work afaik).

Here's the Update:

I created a wallet model. I attempted to restore my old wallet with the json file but I got this error message. "please use a BTS 1.0 wallet_export_keys file instead" I'm not sure what to make of this. So I decided to use the private key. I submitted my key and all that happened was a message appearing saying "Found Key".

My balance still says 0. Not entirely sure if I did everything right.

Under settings/wallet. Drop down list (if you have more than one wallet). It's good to make custom names for backups (wallets) - you will be lost very soon with "bts_default" naming scheme. If private  key is from 2.0 it should work for you - I've tested some time ago. Can't help you with earlier version, because I had no idea about bitshares before, but if I had old key I would try to paste it somewhere under permision tab as  owner key maybe. One I know older keys were not associated with accounts, so you need account first, then you can import the key,

I see my original username for bitshares is no longer registered. Does that mean I lost everything?

If key found, then maybe you must claim your balance. (options).
Is "original username for bitshares" is newly created wallet? Just go into options/wallet and set other wallet active.
I"m afraid i don't understand fully what you're doing.
