for the first question to make like teleporter effects or torches fires etc,, use the volumetric tool, and find the relevant texie make it none solid and transparent, u may also want to check the unlit box on the surface properties,

if u make a flame this way u may also want to put a small lava volume around it and tweak the pain damage, this way it will burn u if u touch it

u can also achieve this by using emitters, these can look alot more apealing and give better effects

for second question

to make lights glow u need to make a lense flare, this can be done by placing a light, choose a lense flare (some nice ones in the emitter.utx files) then open display/ properties of the light under skin add the lense flare texie u choose

the under lighting/properties of the light make sure bcorona=true, rebuild and u have glowing light

u may want to tweak its size under display/properties/drawscale,

do you mean the effects for the teleporter (e.g. funky glow and you walk into it and tele)? that's an emitter. there are many to choose from.
