Currently when hovering over the topmenu the menu expands instantly, and other topics seem to not give insight that help my case. I want to either add delay or to expand the menu only on click. Any changes in menu.js seem to not even respond to changes on the website.

Here's the code of menu.js that should be relevant

], function ($, mediaCheck) {
    'use strict';

 * Menu Widget - this widget is a wrapper for the jQuery UI Menu
$.widget('mage.menu', $.ui.menu, {
    options: {
        responsive: false,
        expanded: false,
        delay: 300

Add Some CSS tweaks to open menu smoothly with some delay rather than instantly

To add custom CSS/LESS always better to use _extend.less

See detailed answer for using _extend.less https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/195712/54588

Now in your _extend.less paste below css code

.page-header.header-newskin .navigation li.level0.fullwidth .submenu {
    transform-origin: top;
    webkit-transform: scale(1,0);
   -ms-transform: scale(1,0);
   transform: scale(1,0);
   -webkit-transform-origin: top;
    -ms-transform-origin: top;
    transform-origin: top;
    -webkit-transition: all 600ms ease-in-out 0s;
   transition: all 600ms ease-in-out 0s;


.sw-megamenu.navigation li.level0.fullwidth:hover > .submenu {
   -ms-transform: scale(1,1);
   transform: scale(1,1);

Then run the commands mentioned here: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/195712/54588

Hopefully this should work for you
