SMBX was always great!

It's just my opinion. :)

GFX Expansion that SMBX-38A does, makes so much convenient.

I wish there was some secret convoluted way to unlock Samus

This may sound a bit interesting but ever since 2018 I always wanted a way to play Battle Game online and from what I remember made like thousand posts on it.

you could try launching the 1.3 editor and playing the built-in online mode from there, but since that's really janky you'd probably find better luck trying to play using something like parsec provided all the controls are set up correctly.

Enemy & Boss behavior customization. Control over things like whether SMB1 Bowser can spit fireballs and throw hammers, since in the original SMB, Bowser in worlds 1-5 only breathe fire, 6 & 7 only throw hammers & 8 is the only one to do both. But it would be nice to give enemies & bosses hybrid behaviors like Fryguy shooting 4 fireballs overhead like a Lava Lotus, or give Larry Koopa the same Stomp effect as a Sledge Bro., or have Hammer Bros (resprited as Dry Bros.) collapse into a pile of bones & revive just like Dry Bones, etc.

It would make designing custom enemies & bosses a lot more easier & add a wider variety as well.

From what I remember 1.3 doesn't even support Battle Game Online anyway

Map tiles that are thinner or more lenient in terms of design so that I don't have to structure my maps in such weird ways just so something doesn't look bad.

This is very interesting to me! In case there is a chance for us to address this in a future SMBX2 version, can you give a concrete example? Perhaps a screenshot comparison of one side being current/bad and then a reference image/edited screenshot of the other side showing your ideal.
I think that would be very insightful.

The platforms had to be bigger and use more tiles so as the hills didn't cut off poorly.
The first has a tiny cut off on the bottom left side of the hill. I cannot unsee it and it bugs me to no end.
The second image has two hills above the main plain area. They have to be really wide to cover up the path inbetween.
The last picture has this problem. I can't halfspace the pathing, so I have to make the platform really wide and it looks kinda awkward sometimes.

Super mario world romhacks are more flexible with their tiling.
I got this one off of a simple google search.
Notice how much more complex tiling there is. Now im not saying it has to be this extreme, however it would be nice to have more slants and slope options. Also halfspace pathing so I can do 2x2 islands.

Thanks for the plentiful examples! I definitely see what you mean. SMW's use of 8x8 tiles to form its larger 16x16 tiles definitely gives a lot more flexibility in design. That's something I definitely want as well.
Currently you can very much combat the issue, albeit a little awkwardly. If you build your map in the editor, then export it as a PNG and edit it in an image editing software, then re-import it as larger chunks and re-build that in the game, you can have a map that looks however you want. There is a guide on it here and it was first used in this map to subtly have more tile colours than ought to be possible.

Though even with half-tiling, there's some things that are always gonna be a pain, I suppose. It can for example look really awkward if islands are slanted towards the camera, that is to say if a plateau doesn't have the same height of wall tiles around all its edges facing the screen, like in your second image. Or if the player gets off a plateau westwards/eastwards/northwards by means of anything other than a bridge, like in your third image, because he'd be technically jumping downwards and northwards. I wonder if there is a way to make these things more intuitive as well.
