By them saying equilibrium and chem reactions/stoich for 2014, is it going to be similar to the equilibrium questions in last year's Chem Lab?

i would think so...

in addition, for stoichiometry, do you guys think that gas stoichiometry is testable? ...and are limiting reagents/reactants considered stoichiometry??

Gas stoich and limiting reagents are both undoubtedly fair game for next year.

As an incoming freshman who will be the one taking up Chem Lab because I'm going to a new high school that will only have 9th and 10th graders, is there any advice you could give me? Where to start studying?

I'm a rising Sophomore and by looking at the rules from past years, I would recommend that you take a Chem class first. But since you want to do it this year, basic stoichiometry is found in Chem 1 classes with some more advanced content in AP Chem. In my Chem class last year, we didn't learn any equilibrium, so I would assume that's AP Chem content. You could probably Google all the information if you want to do it that way, but try to ask the Chemistry teacher at your school if you have one. My Chemistry teacher was amazing last year and she will definitely help me this year because I haven't learned equilibrium yet.

In terms of stoichiometry, Crash Course Chemistry may be a decent place to start so you have the background knowledge. It's not anything amazing or complete, but you can find more detailed resources elsewhere online with relative ease, and then you'll know what to look for. As a junior last year taking a Chem class, we had covered a lot of stoichiometry and were just covering the basics of equilibrium at the end of the year (i.e. how to set it up, how it shifts when you add things, etc). I'd get in touch with the Chem teacher at the other high school, assuming they don't offer it at yours, and see if you can borrow a book for the year and ask for their help in pointing you in the right direction. It's all about being resourceful!
