Please forgive me if this question is so silly, I understand the whole text except the bold part:

Freddie Mercury moved out of the flat they shared together and into 12 Stafford Terrace in Kensington, and bought Austin a place of her own nearby.

Also, what is that "12"? -- Thanks

12 Stafford Terrace is an address: 12 is the street number, Stafford Terrace the name of the street.

Into is a preposition, corresponding to out of earlier; the two preposition phrases headed by these are conjoined with and just as the two main clauses are:

                       out of the flat they shared together
Freddie Mercury moved   and
                       into   12 Stafford Terrace in Kensington  
                 and
                bought Austin a place of her own nearby.
