"Somehow they [the Sith] have learned their hunger from you"

But I thought that they had learned all this from the Sith teachings in the Trayus Academy? Why does Vrook think that the Exile educated the Sith in feeding on the Force from others?
I'm unsure of his exact meaning. Perhaps he think that the Sith learned this power by observing the Exile?

And I think the Masters tried to cut the Exile from the Force on Dantooine because they feared that if he fell to the Dark side, he too will become like Nihilius in order to satisfy his hunger. Am I right?
Yes. The problem, however, is that the Jedi don't know that because the Exile is of the same condition as Nihilus, she is the only one who could confront and have any chance of killing him in a straight-up fight.

Another thing I want to understand is, Nihilius learned to feed on other Force sensitives from the Sith teachings, but where did the Exile learn to do this? The Masters call him the "Death of the Force" even though he has not caused any harm. The Exile simply motivates others to stand with him and fight alongside him. He influences their decisions but where does he *FEED* on others?
The Jedi explain this elsewhere in this conversation. And Nihilus himself did not learn his draining power from the Sith, it is a consequence of his status as a wound in the Force and attunement to the dark side (the other Sith learned that from Trayus or wherever). Regarding the Exile herself, as the Jedi explain, she feeds off of the energy of her companions via their bonds (though evidently as a consequence of her light-side alignment, the only potentially negative side-effect is her unconscious affecting of their minds), and Zez-Kai Ell says that the Exile actually feeds off of everyone she kills (hence why she becomes more and more powerful as the game goes on; this is a clever way of explaining the level-up gameplay feature within the context of the story).
