Some of the gear has light/dark side point restrictions for you to be able to equip. As of now, this restriction is limited to very few items that aren't really endgame viable anyways, while they may get you through the beginning stages these items need replacing if you want to experience all the endgame content. As for the difference between the two? There is no real stat difference as they mirror items, it is merely a superficial thing, they just look different.

Dark Side and Light Side points are mostly just a way for you to customize the tone of your character's story. Right now the existence of Light Side and Dark Side gear vendors, but no special gear for people who stay more or less in the middle, rewards you for choosing one side or the other instead of playing it down the middle. This appears to have been an oversight, and there are supposed to be some equivalent rewards for neutral characters coming in a forthcoming patch. Note that none of the stuff from the Light and Dark vendors appears to be so powerful that it breaks the game to go without.
