Sound like you have a machine programed on stitch mode, to override the program do the following:

1)Turn off the machine
2) With the machine turned off press the gun trigger.
3) Turn on your machine keep the trigger pressed, hold it for about 3-5 seconds. Depress the trigger and you should be good.

After completing a plug weld on sheet metal the molten weld grows to a point as it cools

This is a gas issue. Either you're running out of gas, or there's junk built up in the tip of the gun, keeping the gas from flowing freely. Also, if your arc length is too short, this can happen but it sounds like a gas problem. If the gas isn't an issue, try backing off a little when you make a weld, or turn your wire speed down a hair.

Gas won't shut off until power is shut off

With a tig welder it is designed to do this. The gas is used to shield your weld of all airborne contaminates. Your welder should have a flow on start of weld and what they call a post flow. This post flow protects your finished weld from contamination. You can preset it from 0 to 30 seconds on a majority of welders. I would recommend you set a postflow for at least 10 seconds and hold the torch above your finished weld until gas shuts off. It is doing this for a reason! Too Protect your weld from oxidation and other contaminates while the molten weld pool sets up! Hope this helps out!

No gas flow

You never mentioned switching the polarity, this must be done when switching between wire types, Connect polarity appropriately, for steel use dual mix carbon dioxide/argon and set flow to 25-30 and give it shot. Good Luck!

Tig my pudle melts into gray not shinny

Ensure you have the correct angle when using the torch = 22-24 degrees from vert: this will provide good gas coverage. setting should be 15 - 20 ltrs using a "flow meter".clean the material thoroghly then weld , dont clean then leave for a long time.
Argon gas sometimes can be contaminated and cause heavy soot on the weld bead,
TIG electrode should be Zirconiated with a rounded end not pointed.
Use forehand ,method
