    1.Global navigation will not display in your attached screenshot in the team site. You should go to Site settings -> Navigation -> Global navigation to set up global navigation.
    2.I suggest you create a new term set then apply the new term set to a new site collection, check if it works. Here're steps:
    (1)Go to SharePoint admin center -> More features -> Term store -> Set your account as Term Store Administrators ->Save the change.

    (2)Select the Term store service application -> Right click -> New Group -> Set your account as Group Managers -> Save the change.

    (3)Select the group -> Right click -> New Term Set -> Select the new term set -> Intended use -> Click "Available for Tagging", "Use this Term Set for Site Navigation" and "Use this Term Set for Faceted Navigation" -> Save the change.

    (4)Select the new term set -> Create Term -> Select the new term -> Navigation -> Enter the URL for the term -> Save the change.

    Based on your description, I understand that you want to set up global navigation in the Term Store Management Tool. Here're steps:

    1. Go to SharePoint admin center -> More features -> Term store -> Set Term Store Administrators.

    2. Select the Term store service application -> Right click -> New Group -> Set Group Managers.

    3. Select the group -> Right click -> New Term Set -> Select the new term set -> Intended use -> Click "Available for Tagging", "Use this Term Set for Site Navigation" and "Use this Term Set for Faceted Navigation".
      133494-3.png
    4. Select the new term set -> Create Term -> Select the new term -> Navigation -> Provide link for the term.
      133505-4.png
    5. Go to site collection -> Site settings -> Navigation -> Set Global Navigation as Managed Navigation -> Select term store in the Managed Navigation: Term Set section.

    Per my knowledge, except for term store , JS and CSS files, you could edit it in the UI.
