What happened to the other 21,000 years of the Republic? Did they just...not build anything in that timeframe, or everything was built for them?
I don't think anything happened in the first 20,000 years, just peace until the Sith rose and tried to destroy the Jedi.

The LAAT came out of a single shoot/barrel-like expeller, while the Death Star's laser came out of a dish, and was composed of smaller laser beams.
You are wrong. Look closer and you will see that the LAAT beam weapons are just like the Death Stars superlaser, and don't come out of a barrel.
The only reason they needed a rare energy source is because of the immense power required.

It is said in KotOR that 25,000 BBY there was the discovery of hyperspace and consequently the formation of the republic.
