I was able to add in custom CSS using the "Edit HTML" option using these:

-float -margin-right -padding-left -text-align

however, it modifies and removes my "border-left" that I add. Is this a common thing with borders using css within the regular content editing area? Or does it just hate me?

It depends on the page. Publishing type pages will typically remove HTML modifications, but Web Part Pages will allow them. To make custom CSS work, put the CSS into a file, upload it to a document library, insert a Content Editor Web Part into the page and reference the CSS file from there.
