creating a track with NO time signature
 
Hi everyone im attempting to make a piano track that follows no timing, just played how I feel it, and then have the drums come in at a later point to hold the rhythm...the tempo of the song AFTER the piano intro is around 73 bpm but of course I will need the freedom to change this if required...how do I lay down the piano track up to the point that the drums would come in, without that track being affected whatsoever by tempo changes after it??

Play piano until you're done, insert drums on the next bar afterwards?

As long as there is only one element that isn't rhythmic then there is nothing holding you to a time sig.

You can automate tempo changes and change the tempo throughout a song.

in the sequencer, right click over the tempo section and select 'edit automation' - and/or do the same for time signature.

you can change tempo and/or time signature freely by drawing in the automation lane using the pencil - only the part of the song where you change the tempo/signature will be affected.

There's nothing stopping you from not following the time signature, just don't quantise during recording. alternatively, if you have a midi clip you want to change the tempo of you can either automate the global tempo by right clicking on the tempo and selecting 'edit automation' which creates a lane in the sequencer or you can hold Ctrl (cmd on Mac) and dragging the edge of your clip.
