In Armada 2 i know you can research shields for your planets but is there a mod or something to make it so you can research a defesive system for your planets (so they shoot back) i have not found one.

Unfortunately, for a planet to be able to fire back, it has to be classified as a starbase or another attacking station...this invalidates the colonize parameters needed for a planet (b/c you can't colonize a starbase).
However, you can give it an orbiting starbase or other suitable defense platform and make its techtree dependent on some aspect of research. Litvok Nor (available on the armada2files.com website) is both a mining station and an attack facility (it will fire on any unfriendly vessels and also prevent any construction ships from building orbital mining facilities next to the planet) and is but one example of letting a planet "fight back" albeit in an indirect fashion.
