I created this covered entry with the same slope as the main roof, but the valley lines are in the wrong place. How did that happen?

You should just make this part of the main roof sketch.  Expeirment with splitting your roof edge line.  In this case, that edge should be split into 4 lines - the outer two have slope assigned.  The split points are at the gutter points and the peak.  Try it....

I had to change the Offset from Roof Base. But I had to go the elevation to measure how much to change it. That's annoying. Please tell me there's a better way.

I thought the facia of the entry was aligned with the main roof facia, that is why I suggest to split the line.  If it protrudes, typhoon has the answer.

I tried a few different things and it seems that by creating the Roof by Footprint with Pick Walls creates the error. If I use lines and / or offsets, it doesn't have the problem.
