1. The Federation spans 8,000 light years. Simply put, it is at least twice the size of the Romulan Star Empire or the size of the Klingon and Romulan Empires put together!
That map isn't cannon, so citing it as proof of your argument is a waste of everyone's time. What on-screen evidence can you provide to illustrate your point?

2. Why would the Romulans only send a few ships to the front lines?
This has already been explained to you. The Romulans opened a second front against the Dominion and deployed most of their forces at that location. Only a small fraction of their military was dispatched to fight alongside the Federation and the Klingons. The exact reasoning behind this isn't clear, but there are lines of dialogue to illustrate that this is exactly what happened.

3. The Sovereign class is obviously stronger than the Valdore type warbirds because of many reasons including armament. But in the battle against the Scimitar, those ships lasted what, like 5-6 minutes! Meanwhile the Enterprise took far more hits and only two sections of their shields which they regenerated thanks to superior Federation technology.
Shinzon did not want to destroy the Enterprise, something that's also included in the film's dialogue. It was only after both ships were damaged beyond repair that he decided to use the thalaron weapon. Following the Scimitar's destruction, Commander Donatra offered the Enterprise assistance (medical supplies, equipment) because they were in worse shape than the Valdore-class vessels.
