I need help with reverse engineering

I am a Sith Warrior with Artifice crafting. So far, all I can make is crystals and light saber hilts. Also, I can't equip any colors besides red.

1. Will I ever be able to use blue or green crystals if I am level 1 or higher in the red (bad)?

2. Am I wasting my time reverse engineering green items if I have a blue version of the same item? And the same with reverse engineering blue items when I have pink/purple versions? Does 1 green item turn into 1 blue item which then turns into one pink item?

3. I am only a level 17, yet I feel like I am nearly maxed out on what I can craft already. Am I missing something?

1. You cannot use lightside colors, there are other dark colors like orange/yellow however.

2. I believe that for mods you only have the single green>blue>purple progression, but if you find items that have a prefix like overkill, redoubt or critical, that means you can get different versions by re-enging.

3. Go back to your crafting trainer?

1) No, you won't be able to use blue and green crystals unless you go back below lvl 1 Dark

2) Read sticky.

3) Read sticky.
