Posted here is a screenshot of my eidolon, but the numbers are all over the place on other characters. I'm not sure what terminology to use to describe it is because I have no idea of the purpose. Is this a stat for additional attacks/rd. or just the bonuses you use for hasted attacks after the first full attack? I apologise for my ignorance in advance but I'm curious about this.

Those are the attack bonuses for iterative attacks in a full attack action for this creature with that weapon. This creature gets three attacks in a full attack, at +20, +20, and +15, each of which deal out 3d6+27+1d6 acid damage. It includes whatever buffs you have activated in Hero Lab - so if you have Haste on in the Adjust tab, then there's an extra attack for Haste in that line - or not, if not.

Here's the witch I was playing today's weapon tab, showing the normal 2 attacks for a BAB above +5:

Witch Weapons

And then again with Haste applied:

Witch Weapons With Haste

This is just like in a creature's stat block. In fact, you could output the stat block of this creature in Hero Lab if you're unclear how things are mapping to each other (File... Output Hero Statblock...).

Sredni Vashtar's Girl
Female Human (Vudrani) Witch 12
NG Medium humanoid (human)
Init +9; Senses Perception +7
**Defense**
AC 24, touch 15, flat-footed 21 (+4 armor, +4 shield, +3 Dex, +1 natural, +2 deflection)
hp 108 (12d6+51)
Fort +11, Ref +13, Will +14
**Offense**
Speed 30 ft.
Melee +1 mithral dagger +8/+3 (1d4+2/19-20)

So that means I can swing that hammer three times during a full attack action. Thank you for the swift answer! –  Manchuwook Apr 28 at 2:17
