For your measure : One solution is to use the action Vector Substract and then Get Vector Length :). I'm not a pro, so here is my little idea :)

I can't help you at all for the rest

Hi,

 For getting the normal and have an game object follow it, i did a working example a while back on this forum, can't find it, but will search better and give you the link asap

For distance, iwa is correct, to get a feel for vector operation, simply google for it, and then apply this with the actions provided, there is little you can't do with playmaker on that matter.

Bye,

Jean
