Just wondering how much yarn (in yads) I should buy to do a scrunchable scarf. I want it to be at least 5 feet long, preferrably 6-7.

It depends on what yarn & needles you use, and how many repeats wide you want it to be, too....

I'm using size 10 needles and want it to be about 10 inches wide, and I think that's roughly 45 stitches, or 15 repeats. Using Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight and I already have 6 skiens of it.

Plus what is the sleveage? (That's a slipped stitch at the begining of each row right?) Is it one extra stitch period, or one extra stitch at each end?

The selvedge is a slipped stitch at the beginning of the row and a knit stitch at the end. It sounds like you have plenty of yarn for what you want.
