I want to create a dome of glass. Look on my picture. I drew the red line to show what shape I want. It supposed to look like a mushroom.

 

How do I do? 

I followed this guide:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMotmMqKJ3c&list=FLQ4F4BpZ3NBLGVup5HcLQPw&index=2&feature=plpp_video 

 But I dont know how he flip the dome so that the top are in the top. 

 

And second: How do I create a dome that in plan view is a circle but in elevation view is like a ellipse?

This is something that you want to model in place as a family.  You could either make it as a revolve or as a sweep.  Both of those tools will work very well for a dome, though revolves will be more intuitive. 

 

You can either simly make it in the roof category, or you can make it as a generic model, and then apply a real roof to the surface, which is pretty slick.
