What now?
Did you run "sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade" first ?

What file do I need to edit so that when I do a SUDO APT-GET UPDATE/UPGRADE, I will get Raspbian STRETCH? I plan to install kodi LEIA, then move back to BUSTER. Will this work and how do I keep kodi from updating after the install?

You don't need to do that and it will not probably work.

The packages for stretch are incompatible with buster. It's the whole reasoning for using the pipplware repository I mentioned on page one.

I'm running Leia 14.2 on buster as we speak on my 3B+

did you follow the steps outlined in the link below?

https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 6&t=251645

if not then there is no guarantee that your setup will work
if you dont/never want to follow the steps it up to you.

I followed the steps....and my Kodi installation worked!
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"
