    Guild Traders are going to be your one-stop shop for most items that you don't want to farm for, but be prepared to spend gold.

    As far as the grinding and where to find it, this site will give you a rough idea on where to find mats to harvest (some info is a bit dated, but most of it is still very valid). These will never show up on your map, FYI.

    Go to guild stores and you should be able to but it'll cost.
    You're better off searching till you find stuff. It isn't rare, I've always found enough whilst questing. Try the starter islands.

    You have to be in a zone that is the right level. If you are, you will run past material nodes during the normal course of play. If your zone is a different level, the mats you want will never appear there.

    If you are finding it hard to spot the nodes, you can (1) turn off grass to make nodes more prominent or (2) invest in keen eye so it is easier to spot nodes. Needless to say, #1 is the cheesy approach.

    Yes, buying at a guild store is faster. Here's the breakdown - most mats should cost $10 per unit. Ie, 200 iron ingots for 2000 gold. Your writ will require something like 30-45 units (iron cuirass, 15, pauldrons 12, sabotons 12 = 39 units = $390).

    Lower level items are rarer / more expensive because people generally level and these items stop spawning (sort of...the issue is more that there are only a few players playing lvl 45 zones that drop thick leather, compared to a million of us v16 yahoos playing areas creating a glut of shadow hide.)

    Your best bet is to work your crafting up and spend on the passives so you're getting writs for the materials that are common/cheap in guild stores. For example, shadow hide and void stone (level 10 writs, I think...next to last level) are way abundant and can be even cheaper than 10 gold each. And these higher level writs reward 500-600 gold each, so that you can still run a small profit even if buying everything from stores.

    The other option is to "match" your writs to your character level. What the heck does that mean? As your character level increases, you'll get drops that correspond to that level. If you're level 6 and a sword drops in a dungeon, you'll get iron. That same dungeon will drop...um...orichalum, I think...when you're level 45. Check the charts. If your crafting passives match what you're picking up, so that you're being asked to craft orichalum gear while this is the drops you're getting, you'll likely have enough mats for writs from deconstructing and never have to spend on anything. This isn't as hard as it sounds. You'll notice all of a sudden what drops is a different wood/metal/leather, then go spend three skill points in the three lines amd your writs will all shift to the new mats.
