the only 2 things this mod needs are: a complete mph mapset and a better morphball

This is a great mod, and I've been playing this non-stop since I downloaded it!
The only thing I was kinda expecting that wasn't implemented (besides the Screw Attack, which I have no idea how it would work) is the Shinespark. I didn't look at instructions first but figured out how to work the speed booster, so I instinctively thought to crouch to activate it. But no dice.
It's not a deal breaker though, and if my map detailing skills were anything above "meh" I would definitely give mapping a go.

Quick note: I don't know if this happens in zandronum or anything because I'm playing in GZDooM, but when in the morph ball I can't pick up items or health or anything.

Yup, the morph ball can't pick up items. This is to keep people from just hiding in morph all the time in order to abuse the tiny hitbox--you've gotta risk it in order to pick up health pickups.

Aahhh, the Shinespark--easily the most requested item next to the Screw Attack. I'll see if I can fiddle with the code and figure out how to get that old baby going. :D

This mod has my interest piqued... I must try it. But I had a rather interesting thought about maps, particularly the aspect of preserving the predominantly vertical space of platformers.

What if there were a script that rotated the camera (and the force of gravity) making southern walls into floors and northern walls into ceilings? This would allow us to abuse the various DooM map formats to more easily produce lots of space over space with sloped "floors" and "ceilings" and would make 3D floors and sloped floors/ceilings much less necessary.

Just a thought. It would be an amazing trick; mappers could just draw up the maps as though they were for a platformer. Of course, the editor would get a bit confusing when you enter visual mode.

There was a Zdoom mod awhile ago that did that very thing.
