If things are happening too fast for you to manage, the pause button is your friend. I make use of it in a number of strategy games I play. Whenever you need to take a look at something (like a ships's health or an enemy hardpoint), or think about something, or perform a number of actions quickly, hit that pause button. It's in the bottom left corner of the screen, near the minimap. Give the orders you need to while the game's paused, then resume it once you're ready.
Also, NR likes their fighter/bomber spam, and it can be pretty deadly. That's part of how their faction works. To counter that, you'll need anti-fighter corvettes and plenty of your own fighters. I'm not overly familiar with the Imperial Remnant units, but presumably you can build some kind of carrier that'll spawn a few fighter squadrons of your own.
Planets and shipyards: On the galactic map, next to the minimap, there's a button which turns on the planetary info icons (or whatever they're called). I'd recommend turning that on each time you load a game. They are a bunch of icons next to each planet that'll tell you what level of shipyard can be built there and how many buildings can be built on the ground, as well as what level of shipyard is currently there and how buildings have been built. For instance, 3 shipyard icons means that a capital shipyard can be built at that planet, but if only 1 icon is lit, that means there's only a light frigate shipyard currently there.
