So that I have this correct...What is the third declension neuter in the order of:

------Sing.------Plural
N.
Acc.
G.
D.
Abl.

And, why are there two options for some of the case endings for sing. and plural? Is it because of the i-stem thingy, similiar to 3rd dec. masc./fem.?

Is this incorrect below (whatever is in parenthesis is in reference to i-stem)??

4th Dec. n.

Singular/Plural

N. varies/a(ia)
A. varies/a(ia)
G. is/um(ium)
D. i/ibus
A. e(i)/ibus

See the following for the third declension of nouns:

And for the fourth declension:

Good luck!

Thank you that helps.

So is it correct to say that the ending -e is always going to be the ending for ablative singular for non i-stems and i-stems in the 3rd declension and there is never a time where there will be an -i ending? I ask this because I have heard differently...

Not true, in general nouns do have -e as an ending for ablative singular except for those neuter nouns and one irregular word vis:

animal (animal, gender neuter) - animali
mare (sea, gender neuter) - mari
vis (force, gender feminine, irregular) - vi
