Well the answer to why the UFP does not "use" cloaking devices is...(and this may of already been stated)...
The Treaty of Algeron - In 2311, with the signing of the Treaty of Algeron, the Federation explicitly agreed not to develop or use cloaking technology.
Gene Roddenberry indicated in various interviews that "our heroes don't sneak around", indicating that the Federation made a conscious decision to not develop cloaking technology.
Although most sources would argue that the Treaty was nullified as was the Neutral Zone when Romulus was destroyed...

Misdirection is the key to survival, never attack what your enemy defends, never behave as your enemy expects, and never reveal your true strength, if knowledge is power then to be unknown is to be unconquerable.
