Transcript can be less forgiving about unquoted literals that
HyperTalk. In this context, you need to quote the textStyle:
set the textStyle of line x of cd fld "topicList" to "group"

Revolution uses the "mark" property instead, so changing these to
if the mark of cd y is true then
will correct the problem.

The synonyms for the message box aren't as plentiful in Rev as in HC.
Taking away the word "the" will work, though:
put empty into msg

If you're converting a stack, you shouldn't need to do anything - the
backgrounds of the HyperCard stack will be automatically converted to
groups. Are there specific problems you're experiencing...?
