Honestly there is just so much whining on forums these days that I would not take anything seriously. If I refuse to use certain tactics/consoles it is because of my personal experience fighting against them or because of trusted sources that advice against it.
To a new player I can only say, play and see for yourself. In the end it is only a game and there is not even any ranking. You have to decide for yourself what you want to use.

I would keybind EPtS. That way you will always have it running and nobody will catch you off guard.You could also throw TT in there but that prevents you from using it on a teammate, so it's not optimal.
As for weapons, don't bother to micro them. Just put everything on autofire. Only the torps are worth firing manually. And even there it is questionable how good you can time your torps to hit the hull. It's not so easy to predict when someones shield is going to fail. I would fire them manually but even autofire might work for them.
Cannons and turrets... just use autofire.
