Everything above is done. The bubbling noise stopped but This filter is now 6yrs old and I'm sure they have a quieter one out there! It's just one betta in a 10g so a small filter should work fine. Or an adjustable one too. Maybe an aquaclear? I don't know....

I saw somebody post a comment about a person's tank on youtube concerning their plants in the tank

Query: Is it ok or not ok to just "take" plants from your local stream/pond/closest available ecosystem?

My personal answer would be NO, but just curious... xD

Not okay. Who knows whats in the water sources. Could be bad toxins, snails, parasites, who knows. It would probably just die in an aquarium anyway.

Yeah, unless its a clean mountain source water (I have lots by me), or your own, personal pond, I wouldnt...

And if you did, QT for like 3-4 weeks.

How much AQ salt would I put in a ten gallon? (in TSP) Is it okay to have the salt in there all the time? For the rest of my betta's life? He has slight fin rot, which I'm treating today, so please answer fast! Thx

Only use salt for a max of ten days, for treatment only. One teaspoon per gallon with 100% daily water changes, which is why a QT container floated in the heated main tank is best.

Edit: Also, pre-mix the salted and dechlor'd water in another container. If you don't it will burn him.

1 gallon=4 quarts, which means that it's 1/2 tsp in 2 quarts.

Prolonged use of AQ may result in liver or kidney damage, which is why 7-10 is advised. Also, using it too much too often can result in resistant bacteria, like when you use antibiotics too much.
