I'm barely able to edit my footage on the Mac GoPro Player App. Even when I'm playing on super low res, footage is VERY choppy and the fans are on full blast.
I'm running a 15" macbook pro with 16gb of RAM so this shouldn't happen

I would make sure you are on the latest version of macOS 10.15.3 and making sure your system isn't running anything else in the background that you might not be aware of. I have the same machine and it runs perfectly smooth.
You can also put the GoPro Player into debug mode:
Open the Terminal application located in /Applications/Utilities/ and type:
defaults write com.gopro.GoPro-Player GPDebug true
This will enable a new Debug menu where you can select the graphics card. As long as the graphics card matches what gfxCardStatus says it should run smoothly.
Also make sure the .360 file is on your SSD, and you are not running it from an SD card.
If worst comes to worst you might want to back up your machine and do a clean install of macOS.

Still struggling here, not sure what to do anymore. I'm running the latest version of everything. Reinstalling my OS doesn't sound like it'll solve anything, nor is it an ideal option.
Thanks for the help, starting to regret this cam purchase big time. totally disappointed in GoPro support as well
