I have the question, why the speedrunners in level 32 use the switch and then wait for the elevator to raise them up and then wait until they can shoot straight. There is the possibility to look up and down in the game (press end or pos1) so one should be able to shoot the hole from the other side, without touch the switch, so why they do that flipswitching, I couldnt find an answer to that on the internet, so I wanna ask here.

You can't look up and down in the vanilla game, only in more modern source ports.

Pretty much what MxCraven said. Original doom doesn't have that functionality, that was only added in modern sourceports and to these day features like that (+ jumping, crouching etc) are only used in wads that are designed with these features in mind and require the use of them. This is vanilla doom here, so can't do that.
p.s. also IoS is map 30, not 32 🙂
