Hi i’m trying to plan a trip from Biarritz across Spain and into Portugal. it appears that this is difficult as all the trips i put into the eurail app come up with nothing. Is it possible to do or do you just have to go via the major cities?

Do not use Rail Planner for planning, it is quite unreliable. Instead use bahn.de

To cross the border take the Euskotren between Hendaye and San Sebastian : it is not included in the pass but it only costs 3-4€, buy at the train station. Trains run every 30 min. This route might not show on all planners.

Then within Spain you'll need seat reservations for a lot of trains but you'll be able to make them at San Sebastian train station. Here are the known options to make them : https://community.eurail.com/train-connections-reservations-47/how-to-get-reservations-105/index2.html?postid=18419#post18419

Also use seat61.com for planning, very useful. To enter Portugal either via Vigo or Badajoz (no fast links)
