Do naturalisation rules vary from one canton to an other?

I have heard different cantons have different rules for naturalisation. Is this correct?

Yes.

Even from town to town.

Is there a sort of migrant-friendliness towns rating then?

Worry about the C permit first, before you start thinking about naturalization. A lot can change in 10 years.

and at local level, representatives change every 4 years or whenever someone decides to resign/retire from the rôle.

Here is table I found - https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...tzfristen.html

Does it mean that someone who relocated to Switzerland and lived in BE, GE, JU, SH or ZH for just two year can get Swiss passport? Sounds too good to be true...

No, it doesn't mean that. It means that if you meet the criteria for naturalisation, and moved to (for example) BE a year ago, you'll have to wait another year before applying.

Zurich (city) has had a red-green government for a while and judging by the experiences shared here on the thread about ordinary naturalization, they are pretty lenient if you check all the formal boxes.

In short:
You will have to meet the federal requirements.
AND
You will have to meet the cantons requirement.
AND
You will have to meet the communes requirement.

For example the requirements for minimum residency are: 10 years, 2-5 years, 0-5 years. Big cities such as Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich and Basel are normally more immigration friendly.
