When I mess with lightning effects in CS6 I don't know how to curve it, bend it, it all comes as straight electrical currents. Can I curve them?
You would need an alternate Lightning effect such as the Zap effect in the Sapphire Suite. Of course you can try to pre-compose the effect and then use distortion effects, but it will be quite tricky, given the nature of the fine tendrils.
