How could free electrons flow in a conductor? If electrons actually flow in a conductor, then won't the atoms of the conductor become unstable?

I wouldn’t call it unstable, but you are right in so far as, if you had a material with all charges bound in individually overall charge neutral atoms, that material would not be a conductor. For a ...

If metals can’t sustain an electric field inside them (as their electrons move to cancel it out), how do they still conduct electricity?

Well you mentioned in your question already that the electrons will be moving to cancel out an electric field. That means an electric field applied to a metal will cause a current in the metal. I am ...
