im writing this tab where its only played on the 2 thickest strings A-E in distortion
it starts out / (1) strum the a-e stings once letting it vibrate for about 2-3 seconds then (2) a power chord on 3rd fret-E 5th fret-A letting it vibrate for about 2-3 secs. then repeat part 1 then while do a wa-wa effect (3) then rapid strumming the open E string for about 10-20 times then (4) continuing the rapid strumming but quickly hammer on 3rd fret then hammer on 5th fret both on E string then repeat part 3 and so on

my question is how do i indicate the time that i let part 1 and 2 and 3 vibrate for

don't think of it in terms of seconds, think of it in terms of note length, measures, and tempo.
to give you an idea:
60 beats per minute = 1 beat per second
120 beats per minute = 2 beats per second
count "1 2 3 4" in your head (or with a metronome) while you play to figure out the tempo
