So I'm trying to find a way to customize the indicator that shows when a message finishes, waiting for input to advance. I've been looking for a way to change location and the graphic used as well. Something like this arrow at the bottom right of the text box.

You need to edit the the Window.png file in img/system. I’m not sure how to change the location though.

Welcome!
As I understand it, you want the arrow to be closer to the right corner of the text box, is that it?
Go to the "Plugins" folder, copy any file and rename it to a name you can identify, such as:
"changeStyleSign.js"

Open this new file, delete everything and put this code in place:
JavaScript:
Window.prototype._refreshPauseSign = function() {
    var sx = 144;
    var sy = 96;
    var p = 24;
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.bitmap = this._windowskin;
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.anchor.x = 0.5;
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.anchor.y = 1;
    /*Original:*/
    /*this._windowPauseSignSprite.move(this._width / 2), this._height);*/
    /*Modified:*/
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.move(this._width - (this._width / 28), this._height); /*Only this line*/
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.setFrame(sx, sy, p, p);
    this._windowPauseSignSprite.alpha = 0;
};
Now go back to Rpg Maker and add this plugin.
To modify, go to line 11, you need to understand a little bit of math.

If you wanted to do something more stylized, the best Plugin I know is this:

Good Luck

I made something for @LittenDev [as he requested]
It's been a weird while. I've been so torn down that even playing video games has been something I avoided. But I shouldn't forget two things. One, I love RPG Maker for a reason. Two, only way to eat an elephant is a bite at a time.
How do people even enjoy RGB keyboard and mouse lighting? It's distracting.
