Meaning being an thing basically that you can train to use and can develop to an high degree like in the prequels or an passive one that comes when you needed it but not when you want it like in the originals and the new movies except Revenge of the Sith and to an degree empire strikes back?

What kind of force its your favorite? Mine is the active one like in the prequels.

It's all good. The people in the prequels had the same capability, but they were identified early by the members of a cult and then kidnapped and forced to follow an ancient religion while also learning combat skills.

It's exactly the same, except without the hokey religion. Except that the hokey religion isn't really dead, as we saw at the end of TLJ.

Seriously, Jedi and Sith just learned to meditate and how to hone their fighting skills. Nothing special to "teach" the Force or whatever.

You either have it or you don't.

It is not just all good... it is all the same. There is no difference between Luke's Force and Anakin's Force. Anakin received fight training and studying. Luke is also strong in the Force, but grew up on a farm, shielded from the truth of his abilities. There's a reason he seems to be an excellent pilot and has an aptitude for mechanical things. There's a reason that he can bullseye (not just a wamprat) an exhaust vent on the his very first time flying an X-Wing. Just like Anakin blew up the droid ship when he was an 8-year-old kid who climbed into a Naboo fighter. They even make it clear when he has R2 override the autopilot.

Same darn Force doing the work. Anakin. Luke. Rey. There is no fundamental difference between any of them.

The Force surrounds and binds everything together.. people, plants, creatures, rocks.... some individuals are Force Sensitive, meaning they can sense the flow of the Force where other non-sensitive beings cannot. Therefore their training consists of learning how to quiet their mind and focus to be able to serve the will of the Force, or manipulate the Force to do their bidding. Nobody actually HAS the Force, they are just more sensitive to its flow.

I think he meant Force Sensitivity, not the Force as a whole ^^

I want people who have the force to be able to fly through space without any ship, just by using the power of the force! I want them to take off from one planet Superman style and fly through the galaxy going faster than any hyperspace jump! No more need for space ships. Just people flying around space!
