Hey there I just bought a Galaxy Tab A8 and have no experience. I tried to do this myself but didn't read replies saying to only patch my Boot.img in odin. Now I'm in a boot loop.

I used a guide that had all the original files already laid out for me. But it said to do the BL. AP, and CSC files on odin. I was only supposed to do AP because it has an empty file that the SM-t200 doesn't like.

Then I used this to try to fix it straight after getting stuck in the boot loop

I'm currently stuck at the Teamwin menu on my tablet after power and hold volume up and plugging in tablet.

Is there a way to return to stock and do everything over again? I just bought this yesterday and don't want to have a bricked Tab A8

If you just purchased the tab then yeah do factory reset since you don't have to worry about trying to save any of the data. Just be extra careful and go over the steps again until you are ready to go for a second time.
I did factory reset, and now it doesn't boot loop, now its just on the team win recovery project with the 8 options : Install Wipe Backup Restore Moutn Settings Advanced and Reboot. what do I do now? Because I don't know how to start over from 0 if it wont let me go back to 0

What is your end goal? Do you want to install a custom ROM or are you just trying to get root with the stock ROM? You obviously have TWRP working so you could install a custom ROM from there. If you want to go back to a stock ROM, there should be an option in TWRP to reboot to download mode.
