So I've read through a bit and it seems that RR's allow for non-members to present, speak, and share information at meetings if invited and voted by the present members. Is this correct?

Yes, this is correct. A 2/3 vote is required to permit a nonmember to speak in debate on a pending motion. A majority vote is sufficient to permit a nonmember to address the assembly when no business is pending.

Can anyone help point me to a specific RR# for this?

See RONR (12th ed.) 9:29, 25:9n7, 41:36

how to I interpret what "9:29, 25:9n7, 41:36" means?

9:29 = § 9, paragraph 29 in the 12th edition (similar to Chapter:Verse in a Bible and, similar to some Bibles and most dictionaries, the first and last ones of the page are shown in the top outer corners of the pages of a physical copy)

25:9n7 = § 25, paragraph 9, footnote 7 (footnotes are enumerated from the beginning of the section)

§ = Section

It looks like the online version is divided into Articles and Rule #'s.

it's also the 1915 (4th) edition. If you want to know the current rules, you need to get the 12th edition, published in 2020. It's not available online, but is available as a Kindle edition (and soon to be available as a CD-ROM).

It isn't any of them because it's not the same book. The online version is from the 4th edition (1915), which is over 100 years old and eight editions ago. That text is available online since it is so old it is in the public domain. The rules have changed a bit since then. For example, the 1915 edition is rather lacking regarding information on electronic meetings. To get the 12th edition (2020) you have to actually buy the book. Or go to a library.
