When people say "The more you stake, the more likely you will be selected as a validator," what do they mean exactly? My understanding is that I am only supposed to deposit 32 ETH (but nothing more) to a deposit contract. So to increase my probability of becoming a validator, I have to deposit into multiple contracts. Is my understanding correct? Thank you!

Yes, but you have to stake in chunks of 32 ETH. If you have 64 ETH, you can run 2 validators, and you would double your probability of one of your validators being selected as a block proposer.
