Do you suppose Star Destroyers use some form of quantum locking in the magnetic fields of the planets they visit in order to maintain their altitude in atmosphere?

No. Absolutely not. That is probably impossible. Flux pinning strength is dependent on the degree to which the magnetic field must change between two points
Because there is negligble change in the magnetic field between altitude A and altitude B, flux pinning force should be lower than gravitational force.
What it's doing is impossible unless it's using anti-matter to generate a reversed gravitational field, which is crazy because you would need so much of it in a penning trap that should it be compromised you explode.
Next to nothing in star wars is possible, it's all pop sci nonsense. Laws of phyics were broken over vaders back several times in just the first book.
And don't get me started on why hyperdrives don't allow space battles. If you can just jump from planet A to planet B in another solar system, WHY FIGHT when you can run.

Is antimatter really the only way to generate anti-gravity? And besides, that would be nonsensical, wouldn't it mess up gravity on the ship's interior? Star Wars has "hypermatter" anyway which is this exotic sci-fi stuff which can probably do way more impressive stuff than antimatter can anyway

Most good sci-fi settings address this issue. In Star Wars and Star Trek both, you can't do FTL too close to a gravity well, so you have to just use it to get to the edge of a system and then approach at sub-light speed. And it often takes time to do the calculations to FTL so you can't just use it for a quick escape from combat.
Relativity permits the creation of anti-gravity devices. Gravitoelectromagnetism states that gravity can behave in analogous ways to electromagnetic fields. So instead of time varying electrical currents flowing through a coil creating an electrical dipole, we can do the same with time varying mass currents.
However, in order for these effects to be significant you either need a lot of mass or ultradense matter.
no problem. Happens to best of us. I too once fell for the "make something fly in earth's magnetic field" meme.
No because star destroyers are literally made up.
I know I read some theory that postulates antimatter could be used to create an anti-gravity device.
Gravitoelectromagnetism is great, but only works on light objects if we are talking about use on a planet or something?
Or can antimatter in no way shape or form deal with anit-gravity?
Please note I'm aware that antimatter isn't this magic thing that floats stuff.
