Having a few issues in regards to grammar, some help\advice\even just conversation would be great

I feel similar. I’ve started to recognize a lot of kanji, but have trouble understanding anything despite that, because I lack a lot of grammar. I’ve also tried bunpro and that alone just doesn’t cut it.
I recently bought the 8020 japanese grammar book, which in my opinion does a great job of explaining things in an understandable way. Just the second chapter alone has helped me a lot in understanding at least simple sentences (and you can read the second chapter for free).
It isn’t that expensive either if you go for the digital version ($39 for the lowest tier). It doesn’t teach you everything, but it’ll definitely give you a good base understanding to go further.
You can also look into the resources list here on the forums for other good grammar sources.
