1. Hit chance = 95% - [target's defense] + [attacker's accuracy]
This is correct.
2. Bonuses from individual weapons only apply to the specific weapon.
This is my understanding, as well. CrtH bonuses from powers provide their buff to all weapons, but the weapon bonuses themselves only help that specific weapon.
3. On a crit hit, the damage is equal to [normal damage] * (1 + [crit severity]).Correct again.
Also, are their any caps on Accuracy, Defense, Crit Chance, or Crit Severity?
Your Net To-Hit Chance after the formula in #1 caps at 100%. Any percentage over 100% gets added to your Critical Severity (CrtD). This is why it sucks to be stuck in a Tractor Beam or Gravity Well and why it's never wise to stand still... If your opponent Crits against you while you're stopped they're going to do massive damage!
There is a Defense cap, which I think is 65% (as MVS5191 mentioned).
I'm unaware of any CrtH/D cap.

It's in one of the UI Tooltips. I'm at work, so can't check right now, but I think you get the pop-up if you highlight your Accuracy stat. And/or maybe it's explained in the Accuracy Trait Tooltip. I'll find it and let you know if someone else doesn't by then.
Ok, I did confirm the Tooltip regarding the 95% base To Hit and 100% To Hit overcap going towards Severity. It's the Tooltip in your Ship's Status UI when you hover over the Bonus Accuracy stat under the Attack Accordian.

I'm trying to understand if getting my defense over 65 gets me any benefits.
A ship's Defense is capped before combat is calculated. I'm pretty sure it's a hard cap, so going over won't help.

You know, now that you mention it, I seem to remember that too... I think it's the Thoron Distortion Field power that buffs the Defense Cap, right?
