I want to be able to turn a bunch of bookcases around to create a new wall made out of their backs.
I want to be able to flip a chair upside down and stick a table through it to make a new and unique shelf.
I want to be able to levitate items in the air.
I want to have free control to place things wherever I want to create something truly unique.

This is an absolutely massive letdown and I really hope the devs reconsider. The hook system looks nice for people who are very casual about housing, but please give us an option to turn it off and have three dimensional item placement. Otherwise, this game will NOT attract dedicated MMO decorators who play other games for that reason.

If I buy the coursant apartment, is it an account-wide purchase or a just a character purchase

Neither. It's legacy-wide - for all characters, but only on one server.

I think it is Legacy-wide and depends on what planet you are on? I don't think your Imperial characters can visit the Coruscant Apartment?

They can, for a 'smuggling fee'

OMG....listen....SWG was great...but if the player housing feature didnt save that game....then why would it destroy this one and cause serious MMOs players to leave? Come on...sure SWG got it right when it came to players houses....but lets give BW some time and maybe there will be an update where you can have freedom to do what you want inside just like with our ability to change the UI.

While the system does seem a times limited, it could be worse and of course there is much room for improvement; which is natural for any new entry in a game.

I have several questions:

If I on empire side buy a stronghold in Dromund Kaas, can my Republic alts in my legacy be able to reach it?

Should I buy a Stronghold in a planet under neither side control such as Alderran or Nar Shadaa? So this way either faction alt can actually reach it?

I read long ago, that subscribers that had been on since late last year, would receive a stronghold at Nar Shaadaa free, is this still true?

(At work at the moment, so can't check things out)

As long as you were a subscriber on the dates listed (I know one of the dates was in May, the other was in July), then yes you will receive a free stronghold. I was part of the group that subscribed back in May for early release, so I received my stronghold with 5 rooms unlocked, as well as a bunch of free basic furniture, crafting droids, and a few other things.
