1. How does one set the base movement speed for a custom race? It has been set at 30 automagically when I selected custom race. Fair enough. But, I can't modify the speed cuz the option says that it can't be negative. Adding positive shows the speed changing in real time on the play tab, but since I can't set it negative, I'm stuck with seeing 30 feet of movement when I want (need) 20. If this is a bug, I'll gladly submit a bug report, but wanted to see what I might be missing.

Edit: I figured this out. Use a Base Modifier adjustment (on the play tab) for speed. That allows a negative number to be entered. Would still be nice to do it as part of the race creation rather than just a character option, but at least that part of my sheet is working now.

2. How does one create a custom ability? I'm seeing over 2500 defined ones, but no way to create a custom one.

I'm going to take the silence here as since this has nothing to do with CT then it doesn't even deign to get an answer from LWD. It would be nice if core functionality (character creation) was a higher priority than CT. Bug reports submitted.

Sorry for the delay, our team is very limited and the start of the week has been very busy preparing for this week's update.

Applying modifications for Custom Races in Starfinder is almost completely handled through adjustments in the Customize sections. I believe this was done to avoid redundancy, as the Customize options are already present, and are much same things that would be used for Custom Races. As for custom abilities, I've logged a feature request for that, which we will handle as we are able.

Thanks Daniel. I figured I'd do more poking around to discover some of these types of things. I'm old school, so I would have loved a nice comprehensive user guide to help with stuff like this, but I also know that's not the "modern" way. I'm glad at least I wasn't lost about the custom abilities.

No worries, the SF layout is a bit different than the others, due to being the first one on HLO. We tried to apply more flexibility in how much a user could add/modify on any character, custom race or not, but it is a little unintuitive coming off of the way it was set up in HLC for custom races.
