Not every nation declares full-out war upon another. Some conflicts are short, small-scale affairs in areas of disputed territory. I don't think even the Klingons declare war without first weighing the pros and cons.
Except the Klingons seem very trigger happy in the past, why did they declare war on the Federation?
Because they likely had more to gain going against the Federation during TOS. In comparison, the Klingons probably had more to lose fighting the Romulans in the post-TOS/pre-TNG era.
Agreed. It's also important to consider that governments adopt the personality and tendencies of their leaders, and it's possible that officials with different views on war with the Romulans came into power prior to the events of The Next Generation.
