Do other species unlocks effect attributes?

No. The other species unlocks allow for those species to be usable by classes that cannot have them. Humans can be ALL classes, which is why a human unlock gives you the presence bonus.

The legacy buff for that archetype is unlocked after completing Chapter 2. This can verified by hovering over the buff in the legacy window.

Chapter 3 completion unlocks the legacy ability for that archetype, IE Legacy Lightning Storm for Sorcerer's, which you would use during the heroic moment.

Thanks for writing this it has been helpful. I love to run with Scorpio with my concealment IA . I do retain the ability to heal yet I'd rather dps. I wonder how my mileage would differ gearing her endurance heavy or absorb heavy?

This is a really great guide. Just a note, the 174 HK Czerka gear comes with bugger all accuracy. So you may want to include the tip to throw some accuracy augments on him, or ensure that you are picking left side items with max accuracy to get him to the 97%

So from what you showed on Vector, DPS DOT willpower characters deal the most damage then? That would mean Nadia would deal the same kind of damage too right?

If possible, could you make a test on all the companions?

So far, I would only recommend Power augs for any dps or heal companion (or mainstat if you're sharing gear with a character). Accuracy isn't too important, it's just a better use than surge (over 400 rating) or alacrity.
