If the force can not be mechanically fused through (Like use mind trick on a droid or sense them) then how did Vader catch blaster bolts shot by Solo on Bespin? In his MECHANICAL arm? (And then bring the blaster to it?)

I was always under the impression that it was not the force that stopped the lazer blasts, but Vader's armor.

Why all the stormtroopers didn't come equiped with the same armor is a mystery to me.

Another theory is that Darth just used his hand as a shield; damaging it like Luke in RoTJ.

Prrft...you can't mind trick something without a mind :D

How does Yoda levitate nonliving things? How does Obi-Wan Force push droids? I think this theory is flawed ^_~

A Jedi uses his hands merely as focal points. It doesn't matter if his hands are fake. It's much like how a wizard uses a staff. :)
