7018 will weld in all positions. Same with 6010 and 6011. 1 meaning all positions and 8 is flux type. 70 meaning 70000 psi tensile strength. Just saying.

here's my tip for you in all seriousness.
buy the little calculator cards. I still have them in the drawer with all my consumables and pull them out often. Miller has them for all processes. I don't have room in my 46 year old brain to remember all the different amperage and filler specs for all different metals, so it's nice to have a handy cheat sheet all the time.

Second tip. don't get lazy. clean everything. before, during and after. including your equipment.

is there some sort of process to clean my mig? Aside from wiping down the exterior, I don't know what to clean but if it helps its longevity and effectiveness I'm all for it

I have a Mig welder but am in need of welding some stainless steel. If I understand it right I can but wire for the mig and change the gas from argon mix to ????

Question is how different is welding SS compared to normal steel?

You need to change to pure argon for stainless. There is a big difference in the metals. I have never done mig with stainless but if it is like tig you have to watch the heat. To much and it will sugar the backside. Not sure if you can set a post flow of gas or not. With tig i have it set for a post flow of at least 5 seconds to keep the weld shielded so it wont sugar. Sugar is basically a bunch of porosity that looks like black sugar. A fab shop i worked at used mig for stainless but on a bigger mig machine that had way more settings then i wanted to know about. Watch the fume plume or smoke. can be toxic. Also stainless takes a litter longer to heat up but not sure how this affects the mig process. Not sure if this helps any.
