My wheels are kind of stiff and I'm not too sure if it should be like this or not. Should I loosen them? If so, how much?

Just do it little by little until they feel right, maybe a full screw rotation at first and then go in halves.

The looser they are the harder it is to balance on it and the greater the risk of wheelbite, but the easier it is to turn, so it's common to start with them a little stiffer at first whilst learning as long as you can turn enough to get around. Then loosen them up as you get better at riding.

No it didn't. It gave you some recommendations and you didn't check.

No, it didn't. It does not automatically place threads into sections.

You are prompted to choose the section, and it will automatically give you a suggestion based on keywords. You were just too bone idle to pay enough attention, and now you're stuck here.
