I currently have a jedi knight as my main character and is a force user. I know that the main stats i should increase are strength and endurance. Would you also recommend me getting other datacrons for stats such as aim, cunning, and especially for willpower?

In short, get all the datacrons you can, not only does it give you stat boost (some count more than other) but you also get a exp points for every datacron you find, and hey, free exp is good for you.

It's not necessary but it doesn't hurt. What I mean by that is if you have done the work on finding the datacrons on one of your knight, it will help you remember where they are when your in the process of leveling another character. Since having done them on my shadow, I have been able to grab the ones that I needed while i was leveling my other toons because I remembered where they were when i was leveling them in those specific areas. It was a nice break of the constant level grind from running quest after quest.

Along with gathering the datacrons, you might want to look into getting matrix shards which act as relics. The list of datacron locations and matrix shard locations can be found here. Below is a list of matrix shard combinations I made for my guild earlier on to help everyone decide what they wanted to get during our datacron runs.

Level 15 cubes
Blue Yellow Green = 14 Endurance, 11 Strength (M2-W0)
Red Yellow Green = 8 Endurance, 18 Willpower (M2-W1)
Red Blue Green = 15 Aim, 10 Endurance (M2-W2)
Red, Blue, Yellow = 18 Strength, 8 Endurance (M2-W3)

Level 24 cubes
Red Yellow Yellow = 19 Strength, 24 Endurance (M3-O1)
Blue Yellow Yellow = 19 Aim, 24 Endurance
Green Yellow Yellow = 14 Endurance, 28 Cunning (M3-L1)
Red Blue Blue = 24 Endurance, 19 Willpower (M3-V2)
Yellow Blue Blue = 24 Endurance, 19 Strength (M3-J2)
Green Blue Blue = 28 Aim, 14 Endurance (M3-A2)

Level 32 cubes
Yellow Red Red = 29 Strength, 33 Endurance
Blue Red Red = 33 Endurance, 29 Willpower (M4-V1)
Green Red Red = 39 Aim, 23 Endurance (M4-B2)
Red Green Green = 23 Endurance, 39 Cunning (M4-B1)
Yellow Green Green = 29 Strength, 33 Endurance (M4-L0)
Blue Green Green = 29 Aim, 33 Endurance (M4-A1)

Level 50 cubes Force Users:
Yellow Yellow Yellow = 52 Strength, 60 Endurance, 18 Defense (M7-Y3)
Green Green Green = 58 Strength, 50 Endurance, 24 Crit (M7-G3)
Red Red Red = 66 Willpower, 56 Endurance, 27 Crit (M7-R3)
Blue Blue Blue = 58 Aim, 50 Endurance, 24 Crit

Level 50 cubes Tech Users
Yellow Yellow Yellow = 52 Aim, 60 Endurance, 18 Defense (M7-Y3)
Green Green Green = 58 Strength, 50 Endurance, 28 Crit (M7-G0).
Red Red Red = 54 Endurance, 80 Cunning, 8 Critical Rating (M7-R3)
Blue Blue Blue = 58 Aim, 50 Endurance, 24 Crit (M7-B3)

Sorry to hijack a little but : I haven't yet collected all the matrix shards but plan on getting them and some more datacrons for my level 50 assassin. My question is thus: I have some Dark V relics in place at the moment and they are quite useful for the buffs which they give - do the bonuses of the shard 'relic's outweigh the bonus of the buff on the ones i bought from the dark side vendor?

Vendor/drop relics are all (that I've seen) endurance stat boosters with a temporary buff power of some kind. They also require some level of Light/Dark to use.
Matrix relics are straight up stat boosters with no buff or Light/Dark requirements. You can see what each combination of shards makes listed in that post above. They are decidedly stronger than other relics.
But you have two relic slots and can only have one matrix, so you can always pick a favorite vendor type relic and pair it with a matrix for the best of both worlds.

My question is on the shards. does every level 15,24,32 and so have just one color of shard? or do they have each color to make the relic?
I mean dou you have to go to several different planets/cities over several levels to get each piece?

Yes, you have to go to several different planets to get the shards. Some planets have one, some none. You need three to make a matrix cube. A poster above has listed the combinations. Level 15 take one of each color, 24 and 32 take 2 of the same color plus an additional one. The level 50 ones take 3 of the same color and you will only find the third color on high level planets.

You do it at a modification station, and if I remember correctly, you should unequip it first. I think there was once a bug and I don't know if it has been fixed.

When you unequip it, it goes in the mission items tab of your inventory.
