This is a nice vid for the bit on torpedoes. I realize you're in an escort and the vid shows a cruiser. There are other vids on that channel showing escort/raider style stf's and pvp.
In STF the damage difference between the single target and the spread isn't that critical. Generally dead is dead. There is no "more dead' or "really really truly dead".
Remember torpedoes may also be used to apply debuffs. So spreads of chroniton or plasma will find a use.
As has been noted, spreads can accidently kill an object that you wanted to keep alive.
So it is likely that for HYT you would be sticking to quantums. Dead is dead and you're not concerned with 'slowing them down'.
For spreads you would consider chronitons or plasma for the dots as well as quantums. If there's a grav well in play, spreads become very strong.
I left out transphasics as most shields in STF's drop fairly quickly, and many objects have no shields at all in any case. In fleet alerts the opposite is true, so take it as you wish.
And,most importantly, as others have already noted, you can switch BOFFs very very easily. So when it is time to take down those large targets maybe you drop combat, do the switch and get back in. Easy peasy.
Cheers happy flying.
