You can do this using css. I don't have access to ultimo on Magento 2 but I guess it's pretty much like Magento 1.x in which case it would be something like:

.nav-regular li.level0 > a::after {content:"/"}

to not show the content after the last item use:

.nav-regular li.level0:last-of-type > a::after {content:""}

not quite sure what you mean by "show a small black base on hovering the category" but try:

.nav-regular li.level0 > a:hover {border-bottom:5px #000 solid}
  • let me try this.

  • You're probably going to have to edit the menu template file then and put the "/" character in. The file you'll need to be looking in is probably on your server at frontend/ultimo/default/template/infortis/ultramegamenu/navigation.phtml
