1.] Where did all of the troopers go? Why did they have to get the clones and how did people in TOR not find Kamino?

You're referring to the troopers and Army of the Republic that we see now in the game. At the time of The Phantom Menace, the Sith had been thought to be extinct for a millennium. Because the Old Sith/Jedi war officially ended at the Battle of Ruusan some 1,000 years before the rise of Sidious' Sith Empire, the Republic had no need for a Grand Army and had reduced troop numbers gradually over that time period. They had no need of a standing army with the Jedi Order protecting them. The Clones were a gradual necessity as an answer to the rising threat posed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Many Republic citizens felt that war was unnecessary and that the creation of a Clone Army might be the provocation that would lead to all out Galactic War.

2.] In SWTOR, it seems like the Jedi have a lot more powerful powers than in the movies. I don't know if it's because the movie developers cba to do the effects or the Jedi power had weakened.

If you are referring to the Jedi shown in the Original Trilogy like the 55 year old Obi Wan Kenobi shown in A New Hope, yes they were indeed weaker than the Jedi of SWTOR or even the Prequel Trilogy. What you have to understand is that following the implementation or Republic Executive Order 66, those Jedi not murdered by their Clone Troopers went into exile, and some even hung up their lightsabers forever. When you stop practicing something, your skill and strength in it starts to degrade at some point. So too it was with the Jedi. As far as Vader goes, he is weakened because he is no longer the man he once was. His age and the fact that Vader was "more machine now than man, twisted and evil", as Obi Wan so aptly put it, resulted in his overall weakness during the OT.

3.] What happened to the proper Empire? I don't understand why they had to convert their army into a bunch of droids. They're also Separatists which I don't really get.

The Confederacy of Independent Systems was all a ploy created by Darth Sidious to push the Galaxy closer and closer to Open War. The planets that made up the Confederacy had droid armies, despite those armies being forbidden by Republic law(Droidekas and such).

Darth Sidious was the ultimate puppet master, pulling the strings on BOTH sides of the conflict, until the time was right for him to:

A. Destroy the Jedi Order
B. Destroy the Galactic Republic
C. Restore Sith Rule over the Galaxy

When he did all three of those things, the Sith Empire had returned, with himself as Emperor.

4.] The awesome trooper guy in the Hope trailer takes Sith lightning with a grunt and Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker scream out in pain? It's related to 4,5 and 6 but I'm still confused at it.

I suspect that the trooper had heavy armor on his body, which might have helped to deflect some, if not all, of the electrical discharge from the Force Lightning. If you'll remember, when Luke and Anakin were electrified, they had NO armor on them at all, so they bore the full brunt of the electrical discharge.

5.] Again, I don't know if this was to do with movie editing but I saw no battle droids in 4,5 and 6. Why didn't the Republic in 1,2 and 3 not use battle droids themselves?

Again, as I mentioned above, Battle Droids were outlawed by the Republic.

6.] How the heck did the rebels lose the first scene in A New Hope? They outnumbered the stormies by a mile and had them squashed in a small space. Same with loosing the whole ship.

The Stormtroopers may have had lousy aim, but they had the numbers advantage. The Rebel complement on board the Tantive IV was tiny compared to the sheer numbers of Troopers on the Star Destroyer that intercepted it.
Add to the fact that they used superior battle tactics with those numbers and there was no hope for the Rebels on board.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
