For example, I think Aurorus would be better with Rock Solid which reduces the damage of super-effective moves.

Unown with Schooling? Cute. Still a useless Pokemon with no viable movepool.

Slugma/Magcargo with Desolate Land? Unlikely. That's Groudon's thing.

Yeah, well, I feel like it needs something to try and mitigate that uselessness at least somewhat.

Magcargo is hotter than the sun. Besides, back in Gen 3, Drought was Groudon's thing. Things change.

Alot of these wouldn't be balanced at all. Just saying, I mean heat proof on ferrothorn? Might as well be a sturdy shedninja at that point

Personally I think they need to Branch out specific abilities as well as move pools. For example, as far as abilities are concerned, I believe corrosion needs more spots but used sparingly. Perhaps as a hidden ability for Poipole/naganadel in future games. Overcoat and magic guard are on a select few and could easily be given to other Pokemon. Competitive, would completely balance out the "Intimidate" scene right now if given to more Pokemon. And marvel scale as well.

Honorable mentions:
Fluffy
Mega launcher
Storm drain

As far a moves, parting shot is number 1 on my personal preference. I personally love dark Pokemon and feel it should be utilized better than just 3 Pokemon. Steamroller makes for a good bug move with it's minimize destruction capability and could be utilized on a few others. Forretress for example. Attack/defend/heal order can DEFINATELY get some swing in competitive giving bug types better sustain than leech life. Let's be honest, bug types need more love. Fiery dance easily could have been given to alolan marowak and before anyone says it is a physical attacker, I merely am stating the guy is a "fiery dancer" in the games, thus giving it the move wouldn't be half bad. Chance to boost SpA would balance out. Lastly, and don't shoot me for saying it but some legendaries exclusive moves can go out to the underdogs. I mean dragons ascent? How many dragon/flying types are there? At least give it to Gyarados, the poor guy NEEDS flying STAB.

Honorable mentions:
Tail glow amphoras
Cotton guard lopunny
Spore (in general)

@Missingno_Mastr I forgot about Draglage, it definitely needs Corrosive. It’s Pokédex entry says it’s poison melts through the steel halls of ships.

I agree with many, but not all, of your other suggestions too.

Heatproof doesn't give immunity to Fire moves, just halves the damage from them, turning its 4x weakness into a 2x weakness. Now, Flash Fire on Ferrothorn, that would be insane.
