For highest M of Nd{0,1,2} I am confused. I should run it like a pool N number of dice. What dies “highest M” mean here?
It's there to allow for roll and keep if you want it - you can remove that entire section (highest M of) if you don't want it, or just set M=N.

Im trying to figure out the probabilities of rolling a base d6 where 1-3 = fail , 4-6 = success and any additional d6 (number of dice dependant on character assets) which rolls 4-6 provide +1 toward the base dice. For example, one base dice rolls 2, two asset dice rolls 5 and 6. Total result: 4 = success. Any idea how to model this in anydice with n amount of asset dice?

Here you go. Basically, roll 1d6, add x number of 0 / 1 coin tosses.

Each curve is a roll with N assist dice.

You start with a 50% chance of success with zero assist dice (just 1d6 >= 4), and the chances just get better after that. You 75% chance of success at three assist dice. 6 assist dice is 92% chance of success. 9 and 10 assists are 98% and 99% respectively.

Thank you for this! :)
This probability curve works out well enough for the intended purpose of providing 50/50 base odds with a significant return of investment per additional dice while topping off at not too many dice (to prevent cumbersome rolling), though the diminshing returns are less than what I hoped for.
