1.) Armor Consoles only provide damage resistance (with diminishing returns) to the Hull.
Shields do not derive resistance from armor or abilities that grant "Damage Resistance", they gain 'Damage Reduction' from your Shield Power level (at a rate of 1% per 5 points of Shield Power), and from powers that "Reduce Damage to Shields by +X% for # of seconds", e.g. Emergency Power to Shields, Transfer Shield Strength, etc.
Hope that helps,
