    It's a verb. It describes the state that they are in - a state of too much ambitiousness with their grammar.

    Perhaps you should re-read some of your earlier threads on this word. Here are a couple:
    To be
    To be the best

    Is it a subjunctive use- plain be form or an imperative? Thanks for your help? Is "to" before "to try" is also applicable to " show off and be overly ambitious-in other words- to try and to show off and to be overly...?

    It's the infinitive. Rewritten:
    ... writing is to try and show off and to be overly ambitious with their grammar ...
