Now, since the wedge product basis is anti-symmetric, adding something symmetric to the components will actually not matter at all (its contribution to the sum would be zero), but seen as just a type (0,r) tensor, its component would be anti-symmetric.

Note that ##\omega = \omega_{\mu\nu} dx^\mu \otimes dx^\nu## is

...If I have a 2-form, that would be ##\omega=\omega_{\mu\nu}dx^\mu dx^\nu##...

It would be ##\omega=\omega_{\mu\nu}dx^\mu \wedge dx^\nu##
