Probably depends on the species. I'd imagine Vulcan would have their own for example, since they still operate an independent intelligence service to Starfleet. Same is probably true of the Andorians based on their background.

Do they have like rank and file soldiers? The closest thing to that is the M.A.C.O. infantry, and even that was just only seen in Enterprise.

Starfleet has no 'army' in how we think of it. Really, it's all military together, marines, army, navy, air force, etc. Really, Starfleet personal themselves are the army. But in terms of planet-side troops, they are only deployed in times of war on a planet's surface, otherwise, each planet basically has it's own police and militia for general, day-to-day stuff (much like as we see in the new FE).

How many of those Thousands of Ships are:

Tendors... Tugs... Repair Vessels... Cargo Haulers... Scouts... Destroyers... Refuling/Restocking Vessels for Starbases & such...

Pure Science Vessels like the RAVEN... etc...

It takes a multitude of ships to run a Federation never mind go out an explore.
