Uh, this post is incredibly detail-less and very difficult to follow. What do you mean by "move around the editor?" You didn't even specify what editor you were using. I find it hard to rationalize that you can make a wad but not figure out how to save it. Doesn't it ask you what to save the file as when you hit Save/Save As?

To aid your question about grass textures, I don't know anything about mapping but the wiki has tutorials on it and is your best friend when it comes to SRB2 editing.

Click File > Save as.

If you're using a Level editor, move using ESDF (After you enter Visual / 3D Mode with the key Q).

Set it to Middle texture for both front and back sides on the desired Linedef and check "Lower unpegged" Linedef flag (On Linedef properties Window).

There are different kinds of slopes, and each have to be setup depending on the sector they will be in, There's more details here and few example wads if you want to see how it's done : https://wiki.srb2.org/wiki/Slope

very vague, is there a more visual or descriptive one? the wiki seems a bit too fast paced

Create a sector where you want your slope to be, set one if it's sides Linedef effect to one of these mentioned here : https://wiki.srb2.org/wiki/Slope#Sector-based_slopes depending on what type of slope you want and what side of your sector you want to be sloped, then lower/raise floor/ceiling however you want, That is the first basic type of slopes.

what exactly do you mean by "set one if it's sides linedef effect"
i'm confused, could you elaborate?
also, what's a line def type?
because the wiki mentions the line def type a lot in the vertex slopes

The effect IS the type.

Yeah, "linedef effect" and "linedef type" refer to the same thing, the type of special effect assigned to the linedef.

Since you seem unsure of some details of mapping, have you checked the wiki's Zone Builder tutorial at all to help? https://wiki.srb2.org/wiki/Zone_Builder_tutorial

Yes actually, read through it all, don't worry, besides the crashing of the screenshot function
and after millions of trial and error by making new maps with new sectors over and over, i've finally got control over slopes and their anatomy, fully playable, and the physics included

The 3D view really is handy
