RE: leveling dips

You can use a self-levelling polymer modified cementious material for the low areas.

However, neither basement floors nor floor drains are designed to drain every single small puddle. If there's no slope at all, adding a new layer of concrete to an entire floor and sloping it can be done, but generally requires a professional.
