I am a SP Team Site Owner, and I want to know what it takes to add a custom categories, and if I have the permissions/tools to do it. Current site has Libraries, Lists and Discussions.

Navigating through the generic Lists is cumbersome once you accumulate enough lists. I would like to have subcategories under lists or at least separate, like Lists: Calendar, Lists: Tasks, Lists: Links....

If I understand you, it's easy!

Go into the Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Navigation settings for your site.

This is also at the url   http://YourTeamSite/_layouts/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx

In there you'll see the Libraries, Lists and Discussions headings for your navigation. (under "Navigation Editing and Sorting ")

You can add and remove headings, and move the items around there.

Perfect. What I want to do after adding new headings is move certain existing lists from LISTS to my custom headings. Do you know of a way to do that BESIDES SharePoint publishing infrastructure (IT will not give me the privileges) and BESIDES ShareGate Bundle ($300 software...too much money just to acquire the function of moving/copying lists).

You dont have to physically move the lists to change the navigation heading they sit under. Using the "Move Up" and "Move Down" buttons will shift lists between headings.

If you DO need to physically move lists, it can be done, but is a little complicated.

But it sounds like that's not needed on this occasion?

I created a new heading called Document Links, under which I want to drop individual link lists for easy navigation to frequently used Share Point documents by department. I can set Document Links heading to any URL I want, but once done, clicking on the heading takes me to an error page. Also, if i try to create a list item from all site content, how do I drop it into Document Links instead of Lists, where it goes by default?

What Document Links heading url is giving an error? What's the page url where you're taken and see the error? Somewhere in SharePoint?

Your Navigation headings are custom created. They aren't real places in the site. New lists are going to have to be placed there, you can't set them to go into the navigation group you want by default.
