Broga the Hutt has a "kill" option on the Imperial side, which makes no sense since he's alive and well on the Republic side which takes place after it, for reasons I already mentioned. Hence the confusion.
You're overthinking it. In any one character's universe, although the other seven class story protagonists are around(1), only the player character runs the <Story Arc>. On a one-faction planet (capital worlds, Balmorra, Taris(2)), the other three of the player's faction do other things, and on two-faction planets, the player does it and the other seven don't.

Since only one of the eight protagonists runs the <Story Arc>, there's no conflict on Quesh, since only one of the two sequences can happen. The key thing is that, as in KotFE/ET, there is no one definitive (in detail) outcome.

Nothing else makes sense.

(1) That is, if, say, the player character is a Trooper, somewhere there is a Jedi Knight, a Jedi Consular, a Smuggler, a Sith Inquisitor, a Sith Warrior, a Bounty Hunter and an Imperial Agent, all doing their respective class stories. None of those others can run the <Story Arc> that a player character could run(3). I don't know what they do instead, mind you, but...

(2) Balmorra and Taris are "one-faction" planets because at any one point in the story, only one faction goes to them. You never see Imp players on Balmorra if you're there on a Pub character.

(3) Large chunks of most of those <Story Arc> missions don't make sense for multiple protagonists to do.
Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.
To go to Belsavis, you must go to Belsavis.
