I tried to swap another cover screw bit it won't screw in but seems the same size. Where can I get a replacement screw?

To answer your question, you can review this article for looking for the part number and where to get it.
PN 5S10K61894 SCREW MM2.5D7.0LKTZK L80QH as shown here in Lenovo encompass (for pricing reference but its currently out of stock till 05/14/2019 ). There are other resellers online and use the part number but most likely your local computer shops would have a 2.5 x 7mm screws of different variants that can also work and perhaps get it cheaper.
Checking the hardware manual page 34 shows same similar sized screws (M2.5 × 7 mm, Phillips-head, nylok-coated (14)) with the other bottom screws that you may have perhaps tried. You may not have a good screw base so even the other screws have the same issue.
Just to share my personal thing for this as I know purchasing bottom cover can be costly. A small lick of locktite or similar adhesive in tiny amount (for easier removal in the future) can help.
I hope this helps answer your query.
