Ok great. So, the steps would be to do a manual backup, and then download TWRP on my phone, and then root my phone with Magisk via PC? What are the exact steps per say? Thank you for your help.

If ii were you I would just download the Magisk App to see if that works, it should give you access to root and your recovery apps should work.

Download Magisk via PC right? I don't think it's offered on Android Play Store?

The website has the app as well so download that on your phone. APK files are apps.

You do not need TWRP for the app, TWRP is for the zip file. They both do the same thing but most people familiar with TWRP use that method.
I found 3 versions for the S6
S6: https://twrp.me/samsung/samsunggalaxys6.html
S6 Edge: https://twrp.me/samsung/samsunggalaxys6edge.html
S6 Edge +: https://twrp.me/samsung/samsunggalaxys6edgeplus.html

Hello, it looks like your phone is indeed a rare version however I found some sites that might give you some options to root if using the Magisk app fails. But I also found some topics here on XDA where the S6 Active is impossible to root so I doubt it will work.
