Hello, I am new to the Ready State, so I don’t know all the fancy lingo. I have been doing daily maintenance routines and seeing improvement in my mobility pretty much everywhere. However, my shoulders seem to need a lot more attention. When I lay on my back and put my hands in a shoulder press position, my wrists are nowhere near the floor. And the opposite rotation could certainly use some work as well. If there is some series of videos on here to specifically address shoulder rotation that would be great. I do not have any pain, I just seem muscle-bound.

Welcome to the site! If you have’t already I would take a look at the “Getting Started” tab (https://thereadystate.com/getting-started/). There are some videos helping explain how to navigate the site, The Ready State self assessment, and will help clear up some of the common lingo used on the site.
Here are a few routines to address the shoulder positions:

Have you checked out the TRS Glossary for terminology?
Great to hear you are seeing improvements in mobility in many places.
From the virtual mobility coach you can search the archive for shoulder internal/external rotation, shoulder flexion and have many options.
Daily Maintenance scroll to the 20:00 section Maya or 30:00 Lombardi
In the hang archetype (second position you mentioned) goal is to have your hand inline with your hip without your shoulder coming off the ground. This is roughly 70 degrees.
