Armor rating on moddable gear is determined by the armoring in them, so higher level armoring should have better stats anyway. For the most part, I haven't noticed non-moddable gear that had a significantly higher armor rating with reduced stats (maybe reduced tank stats for higher DPS stats) unless it was a different armor type (heavy vs. medium). Either way, you won"t have the problem at end game and as long as your gear is within 5 or so levels of your character, you really won't have any problems running any content while leveling.
O.K., thank you.

Nope. You can queue for WZ's as a solo. When the next WZ comes available, you'll get a pop-up window asking you if you want to teleport to the WZ. You have 60 seconds to accept, else you are dropped from the queue. (This is to give you a chance to finish any battle you were in or get yourself to a safe spot for when you come back.)

Strength does not equate to more damage, unless your class is Jedi Knight. Even then you can tell by hitting the C button and select the DPS option, and then you can equip/unequip items and see the numbers change in real time.

But without knowing what each equates to I'm unable to make a decision on whether one piece of equipment is better than the other.
If you know all that, then you've answered your own question with your own knowledge already. If you didn't know anything already said, then you don't know all that.
To reiterate...

Str will increase your damage by an i forget the exact amount per point if, and only if, you are a Sith Warrior/Jedi Knight (and their advance classes naturally). You can find out your damage breakdown by opening your character sheet, looking at the bottom left box with the Melee stats, hovering over Damage and Bonus Damage.

Endurance gives you 10 hp per 1 point of endurance over the base. That's it's effect right there. There is no correlation between endurance and armor so your question of Endurance vs Armor rating is rather confusing and not answerable.

You seem to be curious about these stats in an attempt to help you gear better. All I can really say on this note is, better gear will give you more strength and endurance and damage and a secondary stat or two (crit/surge/power/alacrity). So trying to compare incomparable stats is sort of moot. If numbers are green, equip it. You can read through these forums on suggested sweet spots for all stats to help you gear up properly too.
If you come to a choice of say, gaining X str but losing Y end, you have to ask yourself "Do i need more strength or health at this point?" and equip accordingly. You'll also notice as your leveling and gearing that most equipment types and mods designed for a class tend to have two paths... Path A. which will favor primary stat over endurance slightly (good options for the dps and heal roles)... and Path B. which will favor endurance over primary stat slightly (presumably good for tank roles). This is something to also keep in mind when deciding what to sacrifice for what when gearing up.

If that didn't answer your curiosity at all then I don't know if anyone will really understand what it is exactly you want to know.
