This is a huge lot of someone with comparitively little knowledge on the lore answering and asking.

I was thinking of this one:

Since the Star Gods no longer exist, the fluff surrounding the Star Child is likewise retconned out of existence.
Is there anywhere I can find out about this star child theory? I keep finding mentions of it but no actual explanation.

Only crazy people actually want to kill the Emperor. Since killing the Emperor is unthinkable to pretty much everyone alive. Whether the theory is solid or not. Because - you guessed it - the Star Child is no longer canon.
Would it be killing the emperor if the star child theory is true, turning off the machine? I doubt the theorists believe it is.

Where can I find super-marines? Are they somewhere between Primarchs and Terminators?

A psyker can be pure, a sorcerer actively uses corrupt Warp energies.
So, all sorcerers are psykers, all psykers are psychics? But not all psychics are psykers or sorcerers?
I think Psykers are just psychics with training in the art of blowing stuff up.

I though they were different because in 40K, nurture trumps nature?

I believe the latest one was he was formed in the 3rd millenium out of the combination of all of some kind of special psychics souls merged together through mass cyanide tablets. If this is true, the emperor can't be ST. George

I think the Shaman version is canon Right Now.

Also, to add a bit on, what is it in Chainswords that makes the blade spin? Since I don't think it says anywhere.
