If you are using daggers, you should not use combat. But it sounds like you are using Venerable Dal'Rend's Sacred Charge? It is a sword, so it fine.

I have no indication that any one spec is more powerful in low level pvp than others. Some classes are just really tanky. You'll' often run into tanks that have queueed as well.

Some notes:

You should use killing spree on a single target if you can.

If there are multiple opponents near each other, run away a bit and then run back to your intended target while spamming KSpree. KSpree will only hit targets in range of Kspree, not the the target, so you can isolate a single target in many cases with a little finesse.

KSpree does not hit breakable cc targets. Gouge/sap/blind will not be hit, so you can cc one person and the ks another even if they are all in range.

Be sure to to apply revealing strike before Kidney Shot for a long 8 second stun. (2 extra seconds). KS is off of DR 6 (or 8) second after the cooldown of Kidney Shot. If you build combo points for a new KS after the cd on KS is up, usually that it long enough for stun dr to wear off.

rouges should also look for using stamina stat due to running off energy

Stamina in no way interacts with energy or energy regen. Haste will increase energy regeneration and only assassination's spec bonus and some set bonuses like the pvp set bonus can increase energy total.

The helmet, legs and cloak can be purchased with gold from the guild vendor assuming your guild has unlocked the correct guild perks.

Quests in a zone appropriate for your level, you'll receive gear for your level and it makes the zones and levels zoom by. Be sure to use the glyphs and talent I recommend as a good starting point, but feel free to experiment with other specs and talents. Overall just enjoy yourself, and time will fly.

Be sure to check out the assassination video I posted for tops that may not make much sense without context. And ofcourse, feel free to ask and specific question about issues you may be having and I'll gladly help you if I can,

I am a Subtlety/Combat rogue and I have found that rogues sometimes don't hit very hard, but do it very fast so it actually adds up an the stuns are really good. I love my rogue I thhink it's awesome they are sorta squishy but If you follow stun stun stun stun stun you can probably pull it off
