Hey all. I am not that new to KSP, but I am pretty new to the KSP community, and would like some medium difficulty mission ideas and anything else you think would be good for me to know.

Hello Beechnutk. Jr. 

What would you consider "medium" difficulty? What have you done so far?

I have manually gotten small probes into orbit around Duna, Eve, Ike, Jool, and Lathye, along with the mun. I have landed on all of the ones listed above except for laythe. I have a 4-module space station in 120km orbit around kerbin, but for rendezvous and docking I used mechjeb.

You sound like you have all the required skills to manage career mode - which is probably where I'd point you. It'll have some silly contracts, but a lot are things that will take you (gradually) out of your comfort zone.

I have tried the mission ideas thread, but most are Scott Manley level challenges. Career Mode was too hard for me though, but I have progressed to the 160-300 science level of the tech tree in the Science Mode. Managing the funds are hard, as I try to make huge rockets at the beginning and waste a lot of fuel and parts. Thanks for all of your suggestions, though, I will continue to play through the Science Mode, and I will eventually get to a level where I can manage the tech tree *and* funds. 

Also, do you have any tips for SSTOs? Should I use a rocket engine and a jet engine, or should I sue the hybrid one (I can't think of the name of the top of my head). Is there anything else that I could use to expand my giant collection of SSTTGs (Single stage to the ground) into a giant collection of actual SSTOs? Anything would be welcome, as mine can barely get of the ground.

Might be of help (the second one, most likely)
