You answered your own question. As for different forms of literature, there's genre fiction and general fiction and then non fiction.
You're referring to adaptations, which could be a genre in and of itself. It is fanfiction because it uses pre-existing characters/settings/story conventions. They're nothing more than serials of already existing stories.
No. Literature is judged on several different merits. Genre is one of them. Some genres have more credibility than others due to the quality of the writing and the material produced within that genre, for instance. Speculative fiction is not considered "serious" literature compared to historical fiction. Similarly, other formulaic genres (like crime/mystery and romance), tend to garner less respect due to the nature of their story-telling (they're formulaic reproductions of themselves).
But gauging the literary quality of a work is highly subjective. What one considers literary, another won't. To you, personally, reading enjoyment qualifies as a verification of a work's literary quality. To others, it would not. check articles about literature art https://artscolumbia.org/category/literary-arts/drama/
