I've been skating a few small parks recently, and found that landing any decent air with any grace was my problem...

So I've been working on my landings, jumping as high as I can tucking in (from standing or rolling) and trying to consistently land smooth and balanced. Now I'm a bit more confident, I've started doing the same jumps, but with a 180. I can 360 whilst rolling, but not quite with the full tuck yet.

Since I've been doing this, I seem to stick my landings better and seem to travel slightly further in my jumps.

I would say 88 durometer is about right to start with. I'm on 78d and I'm pushing all the time to try and speed up. I did try skateboard wheels (95d), but too hard for me right now, I was sliding all over the place.
