I want my hosting observer race to have jumpgates. How can I make that happen? I want to build a bunch of jumpgate cargo shipa to the players, but I want it to play on autohost. Can I gen the game with starsED, build the ships, then gen with unmodified stars?

Yup. SOP is to set the designs (hulls components everything) to 0 cost(including tech requirements), build the requisite ships with any other race, transfer them to the observer race. After that just use an unmodded host exe.

As long as you don't want uber-scanner ships and have co-operative player(s) to be builders you don't ever need to start late(tho you will need manage the files yourself and submit the files to AH after the transfer.

I tried the zero tech mod, but could not find jump gates. I must be doing something wrong.

Without actually testing, the description doesn't say anything about MT parts, so at a guess you'll have to do further editing to make those available, if even possible.
