How to spawn a random actor (object) every x seconds?

IM new to Stencyl and to programming all together. Spent the last few days reading and writing some code for a basic flappy bird type game to get some experience and am stuck at two things. for this post Ill stick with the random actors.

1. So I created 6 objects (pipes lets call them) I spawn in pipe 1 at y/x locations and set them to move at a negative speed of -10. They slide from right to left perfectly. I also set this up to spawn every 3 seconds. Problem is this is just one set of pipes. constantly moving the same. I have 5 others I want to have randomly spawn at same locations with same movement speed each with their own collision setup ( I can do that) so the pipes vary.

Can anyone show or tell me the commands to create this effect?

First thing, don't create games that are already there, this is my opinion.

Now to the theme:
