I can help.  Nute Gunray is actually secretly a Sith lord, running a smuggling ring with Jar Jar and is in cohoots with Palpatine.  Nute has a high midichlorian count but doesn't know it, and is conflicted about which side of the force he wants to align with.  Palpatine senses this and is considering replacing Darth Maul with a clone of Nute Gunray, which is why he is trying to take over the Senate.  Qui-Gon is confused about who the chosen one is - it's actually Padme, which is why she eventually dies.  Count Dooku believes that Mace Windu is trying to become a Jedi Consular, and is mad at Yoda for not taking this to the Council of Reconcilliation. When he failed the Trial of the Spirit, he cloned Yoda, which caused an unstable expansion of the force. Obi-Wan tried to re-balance the force by recovering the Dark Holocron, irradiating the supernova.  I hope this clarifies things.
