comment Faulty NXT Motor
Glad to hear you could fix your problem with electrical tape. I doubt that will help this "Faulty NXT Motor", since "very stiff to rotate manually" is an indication of broken gears inside to motor.

comment Teleoperated arm trouble
Are the robotic arm (motor) and the gyro sensor connected to the same EV3 brick? If two EV3 bricks, the programming is more about the communication protocol between the bricks.

comment How do I get the Mindstorm EV3 software to recognize an NXT brick via Bluetooth?
A screenshot of the lower right corner of the EV3 software running on your PC/Mac would help. There is a collapsible panel there that should list EV3/NXT(s) connected. Also, the NXT has to be ON.

comment Code for PID for EV3-g
Not clear whether "I used PID for NXT-G" means you wrote a PID in NXT-G for use on an NXT, or you bought a 3rd party PID control for use with an NXT. Let's assume you want to write the program. A starting point is: e-fisica.fc.up.pt/edicoes/8a-edicao/projectos/… (from a google search for "PID NXT").
