Tanking and healing roles

I'm not going to bother which classes are "best" because I know that's purely up to preference and opinion. Right now I am doing a melee DPS class and for my next class I'd like to go either tank or healing. So my question is...

Which tank has the easiest rotation to learn? I have never tanked in an MMO before...I currently have a Jedi Shadow that I'll either respec as a tank, or I'll try out the Guardian/Vanguard class.

Secondly, I have heard some classes (especially Sorcerer/Sage) have trouble healing at points because of their low Force regen. Which healing class is more efficient at keeping up sustained heals in a group setting? Commando/Smuggler or was I getting bad info about Sage/Sorc?
Praxys - 50 Sorcerer Nylost - 50 Sniper Sythion - 32 Marauder Rexxel - 25 Mercenary
Kilaeon - 32 Guardian Fordan - 25 Vanguard
