I can help you with stative verbs, perhaps, not so much with a definition, but with some examples. Stative verbs are not active or passive. With an active verb, you would expect the subject to be the agent. With a passive verb, you would expect regular subject verb agreement, but the agent would be an un-named subject, while the grammatical subject is the object of the verb. Stative verbs fulfill neither of these roles.

Here are a couple of examples:

The bread smells good.
The bread doesn't do the smelling.

That casserole eats well.
The casserole doesn't do the eating.

I hope this helps you.
