Too hard to understand your typing sorry...
If you didn't know what you were doing, or did but didn't think how you were going about it/how it would affect your guitar then that's pretty silly.
*shrugs* I don't know...

Well, you cant just lower it however u like, the lower you get, more prone you are to get buzzez here 'n there. Tighten the saddle screws back a fairly bit until the buzz is minimal or gone. Also, if it continues buzzing, could you hear from which fret, between 1-10 or the 12th fret?

Your action is too low, increase the height of your saddle(s) and you should be ok.

Intonation is really important to frets 12-above to be in the correct note. If it runs just by a few cents and not visible to the ear then its ok. Worst case, your 15th fret wont be G, could be F or A. Here, ill make it much simpler and more interesting. You must have a tuner.

- Tune your guitar like normal, either open E/12th fret harmonics
- Fret the 12th fret and compare it with the open E/12th fret harmonics. If your tuner is showing the note is a bit sharper or way sharper, move your saddle away from the neck. That means you need to tighten the intonation screw, these

If the note is flatter, then vice-versa.
