Are you talking about the Mupen64Plus mapping screen (Settings -> Input -> Controller)?  If so, then you just need to tap the icon corresponding to N64 button you wish to map.  A dialog will popup, then just press the physical button/stick you want to map it to.

When it pops up, press the button or stick on your ccontroller that you want to map it to.  You are using a controller, correct?

No you can't remap the touchscreen that way.  That's for controllers only, hence the word 'controller' in the menu.  To remap the touchscreen you would have to make a new skin.  Use the forum search tools tto read how.

By the way why when executing roms does it place a empty folders named the same as the rom into

storage/emulated/0/mupen64plus
storage/emulated/legacy/mupen64plus
storage/sdcard0/mupen64plus

at first I thought was a temporary file cache for when it converts .n64 & .v64 to .z64 prior to loading games but all my roms are .z64 anyway and zipped roms are unzipped to

storage/emulated/0/Android/data/paulscode.android.mupen64plusae/tmp
storage/emulated/legacy/Android/data/paulscode.android.mupen64plusae/tmp
storage/sdcard0/Android/data/paulscode.android.mupen64plusae/tmp

also is their any befuddled reason why we have two folders for storage can't everything be unified to be placed into
Android/data/paulscode.android.mupen64plusae including the save folders.

Because saves would be lost if the user uninstalls/wipes data. Also, storage/emulated/0, storage/emulated/legacy and storage/sdcard0 all point to your device's internal storage.

And just to elaborate a little more

<sdcard>/Android/data/paulscode...
is a special folder, which Android automatically erases when you uninstall the game.  We use that location for app files that the ordinary user should never touch.  Rom databases, cheat databases, etc.  We make it accessible though to allow the possibility for expert testers and developers to modify the data when debugging.

<sdcard>/mupen64plus/
is for user-generated data that should never be erased when you uninstall.  Game saves, autosaves, slot saves, SRAM data, controller profiles, etc.  In version 3 this will also include custom cheats, custom touchscreens, custom emulation profiles, cover art, and maybe more.

<sdcard>/mupen64plus/SomeGame.z64/...
is for manual saves related to SomeGame.z64 (the rom itself could be located anywhere).  That way when you're in-game and you load a manual save, you see only the saves related to SomeGame.z64, and not SomeOtherGame.v64 or whatever.  Simply naming the folder to match the rom name is not perfect though, and in version 3 the game-specific save directories will probably be structured and named a little differently.

In that case then shouldn't the hires_texture folder be located in
mupen64plus/hires_texture
instead of paulscode.android.mupen64plusae/data/hires_texture
maybe it is already idk, wasn't their a folder location regression in 2.4.0?

Yes, hi-res textures will be in the user-controlled directory in version 3.  I can't remember where it is in the 2.4.x branch.

Could be a bad rom.  What are you trying to play?  Try some popular games first, like super mario 64, LoZ, mario kart, etc. just to be sure your installation is fine.
