How...? You never see a MP game with Torque and bots? I don't understand... you mean soldier FPS bot? or any kind of bots like spaceship bots, car bots, every game need is different.....

What you mean "something entirely different"? different to your game?
I thinks you need seriously to take a look to my list duion, https://github.com/John3/awesome-torque3d
What games to comes to mind is "Legions: Overdrive", "Determinance", "Talon", "Metal Drift" or "AX:EL - Air XenoDawn", all this games develop with Torque3D with bots, but there are a lot of MP with "bots", I recall you about the old game "Tribes 2", almost all Torque 3D or TGA games have some form of multiplayer with bots.

Multiplayer bots just specially for your game?
because that don't exist, you need to build you own bots for you game.
AI Tutorial? yep we have some tutorials, resources and products.... again take a look to my list https://github.com/John3/awesome-torque3d#ai
(yes I know is small)
Specially for you game maybe this can work for you "Tactical AI Kit" download the demo and take a look.

Not sure how to answer this. It seems you need to research a little more about AI. For that reason you need to develop your AI for the need of your game.
