I'm not too sure about what mistake I made, but all my linear regression lines have the same equation although they obviously are different lines. Could someone please help me? Thank you.

Since you are using many plots, the \pgfplotstableregressiona is over written and the last one is displayed in all equations.

Use some thing like \xdef\slope{\pgfplotstableregressiona} then the value is stored in \slope globally. Do similarly for \pgfplotstableregressionb as below:
