Do companions have the same armour types, main stats and weapons as player classes or are there freaky companions who use light armour and aim, or heavy armour and willpower? I assume they do or they will have a hard time finding useful gear.

Companions are like another player controlled by the computer to fight on your side. Different companions don different armor. Some will wear heavy armor, some medium and some light. They have the same limitations as you, the player, and say for example a ranged dps companion like Vette (Sith warrior's first companion) can only wear medium and light armor.

There are also armor pieces specific to a certain companion you will come across as quest rewards, you will know these from the name of the companion being reflected in the tooltip when you mouse over the particular gear. This means that particular piece of equipment can only be equipped by that certain companion. E.g gear intended for Blizz cannot be equipped by Mako.

Having said this there is nothing stopping you from slapping a generic piece of armor not specifically intended for your companion on him/her if he/she can wear it.
