I don't know if this has been asked, but is it possible to learn artifact quality mods/enhancements/armoring by RE'ing artifact quality items? If not, is it possible to learn artifact quality items without learning the premium by RE'ing prototype items you can buy at the GTN?

Unfortunately no, I've tried both.

You can also verify this by hovering over the item before RE'ing it, it will give you a chance % to learn a schematic.

If there isn't anything listed as a chance, you can't learn anything from it.

Not entirely true. You are supposed be able to RE BH/campaign mods (which are artifact level) to learn the schematics.

Can't verify first hand, as I don't run end game "adventuring" content, thus don't have access to any BH/Campaign mods.

(My understanding is you can NOT sponge off somebody else and RE a crafted version, it has the be the original)

I can confirm everything you have said is true. I am cybertech. I have 7 schematics for mods so far from BH and Campaign gear I have stripped and RE'd. Armoring can only be learned from the armoring that drops off of Kephiss HM which makes this extremely rare. I have attempted to learn armoring several times and no success yet but it does state the 20% chance to learn it.

You are also correct that somebody else cannot learn the schematic from an item I have crafted. I know this because several have tried after purchasing my mods then end up trying to sell them again on the GTN.

Do you know if this crafting material for level 61 armoring:

Is found on story mode EC chests or HM EC chests?

Thanks for the input on that. As a Cybertech myself, I'm trying to find out how to learn the schematics for armorings and mods beyond 22. Which ones can be RE'd? Which ones cannot? How do I get them? Once I saw a GTN listing for a Potent Mod 24 schematic, which I didn't even know existed.

Can anyone point me towards a good guide for RE'ing end-game mods/armors/enhancements? Thanks!

It can be found on SM EC but has a better chance on HM EC. You can also get it with 200 fleet comms from the vendor if you purchase the grade 8 crafting material box.

To the best of my knowledge a 24 schematic will only drop in EV and KP and are rare. End game mods and armorings (level 26) will only be found on BH and Campaign gear. The mods can be RE'd from any piece of gear. The armorings are the tricky part, you have to kill Kephiss on HM EC to get the generic version and then convince your guild to let you RE it.
