In big assemblies, whenever I make a detail view. I have a heck of a time to
grab the green dots to resize or move the view. How can this be done?

Go to menu Tools
Select Application Options
In dialog, General tab, increase the Locate Tolerance

Wouldn't filtering the views as per this FAQ make this easier without
adjusting the app options that bill suggested?
http://www.mymcad.com/inventorfaq_answer5206.html

Adjusting locate tolerance will have other effects that may upset your
comfort in sketching and regular idw work.

Or am i missing the question.

Yes!
filters work great the trick is to know which filter to use.
