Was trying to wait until the last room I had left like the other levels but I still have no idea how to begin here.

I start with the caber and try to use the barrels effectively but with that wall under the gel it is incredibly hard to use one without creating undestroyable chunks of gel in the middle of the path. And even if I could push barrels around the corner of the hidden path there aren't enough of them. Am I expected the clear the whole path of gel or am I missing something more fundamental about the objective of the room?

From what I'm reading in your post, I do think you are missing something more fundamental about this room.

I would encourage you to go into the editor and experiment a bit with what "dents" work, when you make them into the gel blob.

Still stuck on this one. The issue I keep having is when I explode a barrel in the middle of the line of gel it creats a 2x3 section of Gel behind the wall, and that can't be cut. So I try sticking my barrels near the side but I don't have enough barrels and I can't go and get my sword until I'm done with the barrels.

We're a little confused by this. We've got the general idea down but it's all execution, and the specific technique is eluding us.
