Currently at tier 6 in IJN and USN Gunboat DD lines and need to know Captain Builds that I will need for tiers 7-8 of IJN and tiers 8-10 for USN. I also could use any good tips and advice on using them. ( lol doubt they will be able to replace effectiveness of my CAs, but often fun to branch out and expand my play styles and ship inventory.) I am comfortable in the IJN Torp DDs including including using their guns at opportune times.

Thrawn, I suggest using this site as a good place to go to get ideas on captain's builds.

I would recommend you look at Flamu's vids on each of the ships, it's a good place to start when looking at captain builds and ship setup.

Best advice when you get the Akizuki div with a competent Lo Yang player and see your win rate hover around the 80% mark.

Here's my recommended build for US DD

You may also swap BFT for Vigilance if you die to wall of skill a lot. 

 

Here's my regular tactics when playing USN DD. Contesting the cap. Never stall in cap or smoke. Stay mobile. Always go for cap and cut off enemy dds.

Though the video is a while back, here's ichase talking about DD's duty featuring my replay.

Welcome to US dd line, both deadly beautiful and versatile.

Both lines (well - technically all three,  should you include the IJN DD split) - are very strong, when played to their strengths.

There are going to be very nearly as many skipper-skill recommendations as players that play them - but the following is how I set them up.

US DDs up the Fletcher:

IJN torp boats:

Again - these are just the ways I choose to set up my skippers for these particular boats - there is always more than one way to skin a cat!

Have fun running the lines - I think you're going to enjoy them very much.
