Attached below. Its the little crescent moon between the 2's.
I understand how its supposed to sound i think. Im not really sure what to do to get there.
I just don't know what that thing means. Thanks.

I would interpret that as a tie. Basically a 'skip note'. You play the first '2' and then hold it down without playing the 2nd one. Note there is no RH indicator for that 2nd note.

So you will see that the note following the small crescent is in (2) bracket also - This means the that note played before the note in brackets should be allow to ring a little longer The note in brackets is not played. What the crescent is telling you is the note is held longer. Not all TABs employ that little crescent. But in most tabs you'll find the brackets.

You will note that above the crescent moon there's a "P" which designates a pull, so you pull off from 4 to 2 (hold you fingers on the 2nd and 4th and pull off from the 4th to the 2nd. Make sense?

You could also just slide backwards from 4 to 2 but you wouldn't get that sharp pull off sound.

Perfect, thank you very much. So I'm basically just letting that 2 ring for twice as long as I would normally let it ring for, and then i do the 4th fret to 2nd fret pulloff.

Yah at first i thought i had to hit the 2 twice, but you're right there isnt any RH indicator so that threw me off. I thought maybe it was something like an extended note or something but wasn't really sure.

It strikes me as a very convoluted tablature. I'm inclined to agree with trapdoor2's interpretation. Accordingly, I don't understand why there would not be a single "2" with a time value of a 1/4 note.  It could be that the person who created the tab felt compelled to make sure that the notes were combined in groups so that each group corresponds to one beat.

Yes, that's a practice that comes from classical music notation. I often tab quarter notes that cross beats as tied eighth notes. To me this seems clearer.
