Main Question or Discussion Point

If black holes stretch the space-time fabric because of their mass existing in singularity, if you were near a black hole, wouldn't there be a time-stretch?

Yes definitely! Thats general relativity - gravitational time dilation.

From an outside observer; an object falling into a black-hole never seems to pass the event horizon (to my understanding), they seem to be "stopped" there, in time.
