I'm sorry, but you're not even close to semi-decent (I'm not either, so don't take offence). This game is extremely simple - like stupid simple. If you want to get better at streaming - you stream more. If you want better accuracy - play slower songs, and focus on hitting the hitcircle as soon as the approach circle reaches it.

I know practicing helps
It is literally the only thing.

This isn't an issue now, but it may be when I play HR/DT when going for high ranks on maps
Why are you playing HR/DT when you have like 27 fcs. Why are you trying to go for high ranks, when that isn't even possible.

I notice that my accuracy is REALLY REALLY low compared to people near my ranking
explain to me how 91% is "REALLY REALLY" low compared to 93-95% especially at that level, where one song can increase your acc by like 5%. Don't compare yourself to others, because everyone moves at their own pace.

I'd also like advice on all mods, please
No you don't. Don't even look at mods.
sorry if it seems a bit rough to you, but what myke said here is exactly right. And if you want tips the answer is to just play and to stop making posts about "i need help/tips etc." because there are already a million out there and it has been answered thousands of times

On topic: You're extremely far away from competing for high ranks on songs, a lot of people who have played a lot more than yourself are still far away from being able to compete for high ranks. Don't get impatient, if you actually want to become a good enough player that can compete for high scores you will need to play a lot for a long time and not give up because you aren't where you want to be. For the time being, just play random songs that you find difficult but aren't easy to you, this will help you improve in most aspects (aim/accuracy/speed). You shouldn't worry about training specific things such as streaming yet, you've still got to get better at the basics.

Also the hit accuracy is a meaningless stat on its own, you're probably just playing harder songs than people that are a similar rank to you (You have insanes/hards on your top performance, so this is likely true).

I thought he had a leg cramp and he had to quit because of that

Check out rainfire's profile page for some maps to try out if you want to focus on a specific skill other than that, I just play multi player I can't be specific on what I play but.... My osu sessions last longer, when I play solo I tend to /ragequit and go watch anime.

No, he quit because Andrea spread an eye disease that caused lack of competition in Stacraft II

You need to listen to Scarlet Rose while not playing the game.

That way you will build up a lot of skills which you can then release when you come back to the game.

Completely unrelated to the thread but is it possible to see what AR beatmap has?
bmp doesn't make much sense to me.

Cookiezi is the supreme overlord of osu.
He clicks circles for our sins,
and he grants osu players the cookie spirirt which helps improve our aim.

You can go into editor to see the AR of a song.

All songs are mapped to a bpm (beats per minute, pretty self explanatory what that means) and then the notes of a song are related to that timing (1/4 of 200bpm, 1/2 of 200bpm, etc).

Play lots and lots, eventually you'll get better. Challenge yourself, play maps you can barely play and remember to have fun :D

I also wonder why people haven't bothered to use a search engine when the stickied thread didn't answer their questions.

Updated original post with

I can't stream. It's not that i'm bad at streaming, I literally can't. I don't understand it. I have the hit accuracy bar enabled, and I try to slow down when it says i'm too early and I try to speed up when it says i'm too late, but I just DON'T UNDERSTAND STREAMING. It's now to the point to where it's stopping me from doing certain songs; like literally the only thing stopping me, even though the rest of the song is within my skill level. I would love literally any advice you could possibly give relating to streams, not including "practice", because I can't practice something that I just don't understand.
I appreciate all advice given so far, even people just saying "practice" cause it turns out, you're right, after 700ish extra songs, I noticed improvement on the topics I wanted help on. However, I still can't stream.

Just keep playing, 700 is not much. I guess you could try to find stream practice maps and grind them (starting on very low bpms) but it's so anti-fun that I don't think it's worth it.

Stream practice maps don't translate very well to real maps of my skill level. It's also incredibly inconsistent. I can get 1/3 of the way through a 160 BPM map, 1/2 way through a 180 BPM map, and it changes every time. Yet there's still a few insane songs where I instantly fail at the stream.
