All I want is for the quote form to no be shoved all the way to the bottom on smaller screen sizes. I want it to be right below the slider. But I want it to stay as is on desktop. Is this simple enough to do?

For small screen sizes, you could try using a media query to apply style:
display: table;

Open in new window

to the parent container, and style:
display: table-header-group;

Open in new window

to the slider to make it appear at the top, and style:
display: table-footer-group;

Open in new window

to the containers that you want below the form, to make them appear last.

That would leave the form appearing in the middle section of the table, after the slider.

Someone has put together a jsfiddle demonstrating this already: http://jsfiddle.net/lockedown/gyef3vj7/1/

This is achievable but you need to restructure your markup. You currently have the sidebar outside of the container that holds the slider and other main page content.

Start with a mobile first design
<div>Slider</div>
<div>Form</div>
<div>Other content</div>

Then add BS classes to move the navbar out to the left on larger screens. Something like this
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-xs-12 col-md-9 pull-right">
      <div class="slider"></div>
    </div>
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-xs-12 col-md-3">
      <form>
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
        <input type="text" class="form-control">
      </form>
    </div>
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-xs-12 col-md-9 pull-right">
      <div class="supplementary"></div>
    </div>
  </div>

Open in new window

Working sample here - the blue and green areas are placeholders for the slider and other content on the page.
