What do you mean by "slip to slip"? Most/all bulkhead fittings are threaded on the outside so you can tighten the mounting nut. Most are NPT threaded on the inside to accept other NPT fittings. There are socket end ones available that require you to glue a fitting in.

What barrel?

You only have to glue on an adapter if you get glue fittings. If you get NPT threaded fittings they screw together.

Both PVC and ABS can be glued. Each material has it's pro's and con's. The best depends on what you are trying to do.
