Regarding the 1UP: The item is in Stage 5, right after the midboss and after the first big turtle-like enemy you encounter the camera makes a counter-clockwise rotation. You have to destroy the building in the upper left corner (a dragonfly carrying a bomb descends at the same time) to reveal it.
...or you could just reach any Score milestone, e.g. 35mil in Original mode. I believe it does not work in Novice though as stated above.
The lanterns are more tricky... I was happy to get this one by luck and without even trying. I guess spamming bombs helps a lot here...
Thanks for the info on Novice mode. I'm about to try it for the first time.
I've gotten the 1up many times. My problem is that I don't think you can credit feed towards it lol.
Edit: I just got the 1up achievement in Novice mode lol.
Yes, the lanterns are very tricky but I'll keep trying.

Also, I got this on Novice mode on my first try. So it doesn't need to be done in "Original Mode".
