The metals from underworld trading can be used for your blue and purple recipes which you get by reverse engineering the green items you make, so yes they're very useful

You will need Investigation in order to get the rare ingredients required for the blue/purple Armstech recipes that you sometimes get from a reverse engineer of a green-crafted weapon...either that or you can keep Underworld Trading and sell the resources you get on the GTN and buy the Investigation resources you need from the GTN...

And what sector and/or planet is the Underworld on? I have been trying to find anything that explains these professions in more user friendly details. These forums aren't very user friendly when it comes to finding stuff, like other forums. But, I am new to the Star Wars universe, over STO.

the in-game Codex explains what crafting mission skills go with what profession.
open the codex and click "crafting" and then whatever profession or mission ability you want info on

Just the sort of place an Underworld needs.

Just cross reference the colors in this. You'll see what gathering skill is good with armstech and others.
