The fastboot command to flash your recovery is:

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

where "recovery.img" is the name of your recovery.img file on your host computer. Don't use "fastboot flash boot recovery.img", as I believe this will flash your boot partition, not the recovery partition.

if you flash to anything but the recovery partition your in some trouble.
same goes for anything like this, make sure you know what that .img is and you trust it. someone could have renamed an hboot to recovery and you end up flashing an hboot to your recovery partition because someone was careless with naming of files.

So I need help... I'm stuck in a bootloader loop. And every time I try to do this fix, terminal keeps telling me this:

error: cannot open 'M8VZWbootInsecure.img'

Any ideas?

Almost certain the command has to be "fastboot flash nameofrecovery.img"

This is incorrect.

command is:

fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img


additionally, since you can boot into TWRP, have you tried sideloading a rom?
(in TWRP, go to ADVANCED, click SIDELOAD... i think you need to swipe to activate... then from terminal: adb sideload nameofROM.zip)
