the different weapon types (phaser,disruptor,plasma and etc) other than the different special effects (Including the effect of different weapon type, ie 250 degree firing arc arrays or 45% firing arc banks) , do they do the same amount of BASE DPS (that is before any special effect of player level, bo levels and console/racial bonus) at the same levels?


Yes and yes, they do the same damage, they just differ in terms of visual effects and side-effects (debuff, procc etc.).

Firing arcs etc. just depend on the weapon archetype, i.e. all "Beam Arrays" have a 250 Arc, for example.
