What is it? They hit at range on 4+, but there is no range, number of shots or damage for the ranged attack listed in the abilities section.

I do see a “Range 10 Shots 1 Damage 3 (ignore defense)” in the Elite Chart but it looks as if it links to the Spitting Acid elite ability. Is that what I should use for normal ranged Slug attacks as well?

Yeah, the Spitting Acid elite ability is just that - their ranged attack. If they don't have that elite ability, they simply don't have a ranged attack.

So, ironically, a slug with that elite ability might be easier to deal with than a regular version because it would stay at distance. It would have less chance to hit and my heroes could possibly remain far enough away to not take the horror hits

Not really, the spitting attack, as stated, is in addition to its normal attack. So it would make a ranged attack at the start of its activation, then move as normal (if not already adjacent to a Hero) and then make a close combat attack.

Could it be this would better be placed in the forums of Shadows of Brimstone: Swamp Slugs of Jargono Enemy Pack? This way nobody will find it through BGG at the location where one would look...

The city of the Ancients board is the primary board for SoB. The FoFo core set board gets some traffic too, but beyond that, nobody looks at any of the others. A question in one of the expansion’s forums would probably never get answered.
