I believe (may be wrong) that the Sith Inquisitors heals are also life-drains of opponents, thus making them somewhat dark. Healing for Light-side Jedi is a very developed profession, check Jedi Healers on Wookieepedia.

Now for healing blasters, I sometimes see DOC, my companion shoot at me but thats a white gun with a Kolto vial under it,

FYI: Kolto is a super-fluid-bandage.

Yes, the force can heal. As for the why, that's fairly obvious - to keep you alive.

Purely a game mechanic with no basis in canon. I honestly have no idea what they were thinking when they did this, considering that there is a wide variety of other options that are actually sensible, like the medic-scans and the small healbot droids and whatnot.

No. Blasters do not heal.

In the game? Mechanically? No.
Classes are completely mirrored. There is no functional difference between a Sage and a Sorcerer.

Lore-wise, the force is just the force. There's nothing actively preventing anyone from using anything. There's technically no canonical reason Sages couldn't use Force Lightning. It's just that they don't.
