Just wondering if there is any way to install a folder full of fonts at once? I have tried using Font Book to install one at a time, but I have a folder with about 100 fonts and inside the folder, they are also all inside individual folders. Is there any way to get these all installed at the one time?

I usually use Font Explorer X for importing new fonts. It is a free App.

I think you can just drag them all to your fonts folder as well:
"/Users/YOURUSER/Library/Fonts"

I just opened Font Book, browsed to the root of the folder containing all the fonts and clicked Import. That imported the whole lot, all 200 of them, in one go.
