    How do you find an entity by it's number (like 464)?

    As far as I'm aware, Point entities don't have ID numbers. Only brushes have numbers, so brush entities will still have them

    Well, I compiled pl_inferno, and the compiler said that entity id 464 was a displacement and it couldn't compile.

    Use visgroups to turn off everything that isn't a displacement and look for one that's tied to an entity. Then, move it to world.

    I guess you could search for it by opening up the VMF in a text editor and CTRL + F "id" "464", copy the origin coordinates and then clicking view > go to coordinates to find the entity.
