For OLL, just learn the sexy-move-based algorithms, at least to start. You should already know a sune/anti-sune that is relatively fast from 3x3. The Pi, U, and T cases are extremely easy. The H perm is only 5 moves. The L perm is the only arguably difficult one, and you should be able to learn that in a day.
For PBL, the adjacent u and diagonal u cases are just T and Y perms. diag/diag case is 3 simple moves and recognition is very easy. The other two are pretty easy to memorize if you just look at the moves you make rather than the notation. The adj/diag is R U' R then F2, then reverse the first 3 with R' U R'.
You already know 4 algs from 3x3, you can learn the olls in a few days, and the plls in a couple days.
This seems really confusing, but thanks for the advice

Starting a progression thread because why not. My goals are simple:
Sub-30 3x3
Sub-10 2x2
Sub-5 Pyraminx
Learn 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, Megaminx, Skewb, and Square-1

My current means:
2x2 - 25.54
3x3 - 36.57
Pyraminx - 19.14
and assuming you know Beginner CFOP, try learning a few Full PLL algs like F Perm or Jb Perm to make your times faster.

All I know is Intuitive F2L and some Look Ahead, I haven't learned PLL yet but I will
i actually watched j perm's vid about basic OH and i got a sub 2 after 2 ao5s, so watch it if you havent
I recommend having really good finger tricks.
This is all good advice, thank you.
