Pretty basic really. Each sword skill has an activation motion that the player needs to do that basically tells the system "hey i'm doing super sword attack #5" system then takes over control and does the attack for the player. It's what Kirito was showing Klein in the first episode, to make sure he uses the proper motion or else the attack won't work and you'll just be swinging blindly, and that does very badly.

I see. So are these Sword skills created by the user or the game?

No, you can't create your own sword skill in Sword Art Online. They are premade by the system.

Although apparently there are "almost endless" number of sword skills available.

I don't know about endless, but I know there's a LOT of them.

It's apparently a planned rewrite of SAO's Aincrad arc, in the interests of better continuity and making the sidestories and main story fit together.

Probably would be Aincrad floor 1 - end of Aincrad arc.

Which could make like 20 volumes probably.

All side story is quite indenpendent, you won't miss much read any of them first.
If you want to follow chronical order, there is a date follow every sidestory title, (sometime Kirito go to lower floor later on to do his things).

If you really want to follow chonical order I would advise you read "First Day" and "Aria on starless night" first before going with volumn 2.

well, I already read until Volume 5 Chapter 1 Part 2, but, as SAO Episode 2 came out and it covert ''Aria on the starless night'', I just wanted to read it for more info and maybe reading the others to, as the Anime is going in the chronical order

So in MMOs it's common to re-fight, or "farm" a boss for some purpose, usually loot, so let's say a group of players want to re-fight the boss of floor 1 from ep 2, for loot, would this possible?, and if yes is there a limit to how many times players could do this?

Unrelated Question are "rare loot" items, like the cloak Kirito got, do they have special stats not normally found on items, or do they simply offer more stats than other items might offer? Also are such items only available from bosses, or are there chances to find items of that quality at much lower rates on other enemies?

As far as we know, once a floor boss is gone, it's gone forever.

Who knows? It's not even entirely clear how stats work in SAO.

Kirito will eventually leave that coat behind and get a better one. And I don't think all his coats come from floor boss drops. In fact, one of them was crafted.
