[Neil Goodman] "Why would i want to wrap sometrhin in a second storyline while im building an edit, just to gain the function of a roll tool?"

It depends whether you're building vertically or horizontally. Building vertically with Connected Clips means each clip maintains a connection to the clip (a frame actually) in the Primary Storylline. This is done if you will move the entire vertical relationship as a unit. Think primary storyline shot with a cutaway or titles or other composits.

Secondary Storyline is a horizontal relationship with a single connection point. This might be a shot in the primary storyline line with several cutaways that transition to each other. That group of shots with transitions in the secondary storyline only need maintain a single connection so that if one moves the clip in the primary storyline, that secondary storyline will move with it.

If you want to transition between two connected clips, just hold down the G key when you move them and when they touch they become Secondary Storyline.

[Neil Goodman] "Unless im missing something, i couyldnt find a way to add to an already existing secondary storyline "

Select the Secondary Storyline (the top gray bar not the clips in it) and you can edit to it just as you can a Primary Storyline. W to insert, E to append, D to overwrite.
