How do you code in combo moves and such. And by this I mean how do you get Godot to register several buttons push at once. Thanks in advance

Real fighting games rarely check if buttons are pressed at once. Each button press triggers some kind of combo indicator/counter and untriggers it after chosen time passes. For moves like A+B this time is simply very small, closer to few frames. I suspect modern fighting games have very complicated button - combo system, backed up by large data sheets. You can design simpler one, but You surely need this kind of input intermitter to detect multiple presses ( if input X is (just)pressed → actionpress X is true → wait Y - > action X is false )
