I figured out how to automatically add a newly-created user to a group when they fill out a contribution or event page, but I want to add them to a Backdrop role as well. How can I do that?

First, go to your modules listing and enable "CiviGroup Roles Sync": enter image description here

Next, go to Drupal's Configuration menu » CiviCRM » CiviGroup Roles Sync » Add association rule: enter image description here

From here, you can set the CiviCRM group that corresponds to the Backdrop/Drupal role: enter image description here

Note this only works when contacts are newly added to the group (or role). However, you can manually synchronize in the configuration settings.
