im fairly new to all this and would just like one or two tips for downloading mods and stuff for the game?! o and what i need to download to my comp? thx
Best tip; just go through sites and select the mods you like. I prefer findignf one that uses a patcher program to install them as it will mesh the mods and hopefuly reduce the number of conflicts.

So your question is how you should install mods or which mods we could recommend to you?
Let's start with the how to use/install mods.
Alright, first of all, make sure you have an unzip/unrar program. I'd recommend 7zip or WinRAR. Once you have that, go to KOTORFiles, and browse for some nice mods you like. Watch out though, that you don't browse the KOTOR 1 section, while looking for KOTOR 2 mods.
Once you've chosen a mod, and downloaded it, upzip/rar the mod file to your preferred location (NOT the KOTOR Directory). Then, go to your KOTOR2 directory, and look if you have a folder called 'Override'. If you don't, create one.
Then, follow the instructions in the README file, which is in your downloaded zip/rar file. Most likely it'll tell you to move the mod files to your Override folder. But some addons, also require you to move certain files to the movies folder. But don't worry about that; it would be announced if that's the case.
If you use mods which require a cheat code in order to obtain your item, go to your SWKOTOR2 main directory, and look for the 'SWKOTOR2.ini' file. Open it with notepad, and add the following line, under the '[Game Options]' tag.
It should look like this:
Then, when you're ingame, press the "~" button, in order to activate the cheat console. However, you won't see it, so type carefully.
Then, have fun with your mod. :) Hope this helps you.
