How to normalize vertex positions based on a ring edge selection?
This picture shows what I need to do. I want to select a ring and then have that vertex move from point a to b .. Something that normalizes a ring so there is no vertex right inbetween two others.
I wish I knew how to explain it better or else I'd try to google it.

I don't suppose anyone has a Maya solution for that? :D

The code should not be hard to port to MEL.
If you know both MEL and mxs, that is ;)

ughhh. I need to learn MEL. Would I be better suited to learn Python or MEL Garp?

MEL is specific to Maya. Python is used in a lot of places (plus it has an extensive library).
I guess it depends on your needs. Does Maya support Python?
Whichever you pick, try to find the time to learn it properly. It'll save you tons of time later.

Right off the bat I get the feeling that Python is going to be more of a challenge to learn than Mel, but in the long run it's going to for sure have more applications than just Maya like MEL.
Well, if I can do the same damn thing in Maya with both I guess it makes sense to learn Python over MEL. Would there be a chance that some maya plugins do not support Python? Or if it can be called in MEL it can be called in Python within Maya?
Long year ahead of me!

I don't know how hard MEL is but I'm sure there are a lot more tutorials and textbooks on Python. You might want to look at coursera or edX too.
