I've been playing SWTOR since the beta test... I've learned some about MMO's in general. I play as much as I can solo. With that said, are the Flashpoints and Operations for the game updates ( Rise of the Rakghouls, HK-51 Activated, etc) still in effect and i have to hunt for them, or does BioWare take them off after a certain time?
For free stuff...
Are you looking for a casual HELPFUL leveling guild on the Harbinger server? Join <Hawke's Flight>(Imp side) and <Hawke's Nest> (Pub side). Pub/Imp sides.
PST Hawketank (Imp) or HawkeSent (Pub) or PM me here for invite.

Aside from the events which have come and gone, all the new content is still there and made for level 50's. All these quests can be picked up from NPC's around the Fleet.

The two you mentioned in your post: Rise of the Rakghouls refers to two level 50 flashpoints, Kaon Under Siege and Lost Island. The quest to obtain HK-51 is found in the Section X level 50 daily area which is free to subscribers but requires a pass for F2P and preferred.

All operations are level 50 and all can be done with groups of 8 or 16. Story Mode Eternity Vault and Karagga's Palace can be done through Group Finder. The others you'll need to find groups for on your own. All operations can be entered via their doors on the Ziost Shadow or its republic equivalent at the Fleet.

It's a good idea to know how to do an operation's boss fights before you go in, so look around online for guides before attempting any operations.

So all of the past events that are in the past game updates are still alive just as Ops & Flashpoints?

No, the Rakghoul event on Tatooine and the Chevin event are gone. The Gree event from last month is back on Ilum starting today and requires level 45.

However "Events" are NOT "Flashpoints and Operations". Events last about 2 weeks and then disappear. This Gree event is the first one which has ever come back, though it too will only last a week or two.

Once a Flashpoint/Operation is in game it is there forever. The same applies to Daily Areas like Black Hole and Section X.

so, why don't they keep the past events for new subs & people that don't feel like doing them at that time? Seems like a loss of playing time and more XP to me.

Because they are "events." If they were there all the time, they woud cease being an event and just another daily.

I hope so, I got too many Rakghoul Kira Carsens and no Elara Dorne. Plus, that event was amazing
