First question:
Are you planning on taking action with Urshifu-R
second
Any way I can help?
The council has an eye on a few Pokemon, Urshifu-R is not one of them. Will post later in the appropriate area about potential future tiering updates. This question is also much better suited for the metagame discussion thread. A way you can help is to provide insightful posts to the many resources, threads, and projects this forum has and will run in the future!
 
What would be a good replacement for Buzzwhole in a mono bug team? Playing a tournament with no legends or UBs and I'm planning on using Bug, cause I like the type, was thinking scarf heracross?

Heracross is the perfect plug if you wanna not use legends due to bug-fighting and good power.
 
What are some tips to beat the type a team has a disadvantage in National Dex Monotype? For example, how can a mono water team beat a mono electric team?
Most types have counters or ways to offensively counter pokemon, for example having an Electric immunity is key like mega Swampert who is sadly slower than Raichu-Alola, but you can also run Barraskewda who 2hkos and outspeeds almost everything on electric but is sadly harder to fit on most teams, this replay is a great example of water beating electric https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8nationaldexmonotype-1315357775
