Just gonna warn you R/B has a very clunky layout when it comes to editing. The script system is awfully unorganized as well.

I don't know any editors unfortunately. Doesn't TileMolester have the ability to edit overworld sprites?

you can use the program YY-CHR for sprite editing, that's what i use for the most part when doing romhacks.

How are types stored? R/B only.

The table is at 0x3e474 (f:6474) in red/blue and the format for each entry is [attacking type][defending type][damage multiplier]. Damage multiplier is 0x05 for not very effective, 0x14 for super-effective, and 0x00 for ineffective. This value will be divided by 0x0A during damage calculation. Any combination not present in that table has a default effectiveness of neutral (10 or 0x0A).

See here:

Type constants:
Types with an index equal or higher than 0x14 will be treated as special, the rest will be physical.

Know any good overworld sprite editors? R/B please.

The pokered dissasembly. You just need the sprite in png format and pokered will do the rest for you converting the image to 1bpp/2bpp. Of course, the size must match with the original sprite and you would use 2 and 4 different shades/colors for 1bpp and 2bpp respectively.
