It should be the same key as in game (default is r)
you can't rotate walls though.

you're using the wrong tab.
the tap you want to use is the "entity" tab (the third one)
take the hand tool, select an entity, and right click to place it.
you can use "x" to delete an entity while hovering above it.

Go to Entities in the top bar, choose a chest from the Entities below (middle tab, Logistics) and put the chest down on the map with right-click.
Open the placed chest with right-click and put the items in it.
To limit the stack size of the item you want to put in the chest, change the slider at the bottom (Inventory transfer limit) and CTRL+click the item.
