Hey so I am kind of new to using lossless audio especially WAV, and I'm really organized with all my music files I always fix the metadata if it's off and I'll add artwork and lyrics but I cannot seem for the life of me to write that kind of data to WAV files. Is it even possible? I usually use mp3tag pro for mp3's and FLAC's and it works fine for that, can anyone help please?

Sorry, why would you use WAV over FLAC? Is it because of some software/hardware requirement?

Well maybe I can clarify this here, because I thought that even though both WAV and FLAC are considered to be lossless audio I thought that WAV was kind of like the best for lossless formats considering the bit rate is always a bit higher than FLAC files.

Bit rate is a measure of filesize per second of audio. Hence, for lossless encodes you'd want to choose the encoder producing encodes with the smallest bit rate. There is some correlation of increasing perceived audio quality with increasing bit rate for lossy encoding, when comparing encodes made by the same encoder. To use bit rate as quality metric across multiple lossy formats is invalid.
