Hi, just want to ask a few questions

1. How can I make my own skybox, want to make me a mario skybox since can't find anyone and just look to stupid on a mario map with a normal sky box :P

2. How can I make a wall I can shoot and throw nades true but dont run true it?

3. Can you turn teleports On and Off?

4. How can I can se the water from the sides? When I create it and dont got any object around it its invisible and can just se the texture from the top, not from the sides if you understand me.
Think it would been cool for portals.

5. Do you know of any programs so I can open .bsp files. No dont to steal their map, but maby how they have made some of the advance things on their map, that I dont have a clue to make my self.

6. How can I import my own sounds to valve hammer?

Everything if for Valve Hammer Editor 3.4 SDK

make an entity ambiance generic in the <b>path</b> input box [in properties] type ambiance/*.wav [where * is the name of your music]
Notes ::
1] your music/sound must be in the following format
wav 8 bit mono 11025 hz pcm and less than 3 mins
2] your file must be in the valve\sound\ambiance folder

if you do not have the proper format http://www.audiotool.net/EaseAudioConverter/index.htm [30 day trial]
it has all the options required to make you sound work
if you need to cut your music down to size then http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ [free]
as for the others im not too sure
but i will look around and try to help you

Like KD said, just make a normal brush and texture it with the CLIP texture.

Well, decompiling the map will often produce something that will take longer for you to decipher than it would to get the answer here.

Or you just want a standard night-time one?
In Hammer, got to Map->Map Properties... and set environment map to "night" or another valid skybox name. Here are some CS sky names:

desert
backalley
badlands
blue
city1
cliff
cx
de_storm
Des
doom1
DrkG
dusk
forest
green

Yes, just make a button (or whatever you want) and name it e.g. 'button', then in the trigger_teleport write 'button' in the Master field.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

So I can only make invisible walls that I can shoot and cast nades true but not run true?

You can make a textured func_illusionary over it.
