Don't go with slotted rotors for a ranger. The slots are made to wear a very slight bit off the break pad every time they pass to make a clean surface on the pads. This wears the pads down much faster than drilled or solid rotors. Slots should really only be used for racing applications. Another function of the slots is to remove gasses from between the pad and disk for better contact. Drilled rotors do this just as well and won't wear the pads as fast.

Yes. It does not make a difference whether is is the conventional, slotted or drilled rotors. They can all be machined in a brake lathe with the same accurate result.
