doesn't matter where you slide from, but it sounds better if you slide up from a note that's in the scale of the song

those are generally quick enough slides that it doesn't matter what note you start from. it's just about the sliding sound and not so much the actual starting note.
#4
the "definition" of that is a slide fro nowhere. but you can pretty much start on any note

That

Just slide from a note under 5

Assuming the tab works off common sense, that's not a slide up to five, that's a slide down to five. A slide up would be:

|--/5--|

As there's no fret prior to the five, take it from wherever feels natural or a note in the scale, it's probably a fast slide also.
