I'm not sure I can make it any more simple. Just do what it says. If you are playing the Sony Online Entertainment version of the game (official pay to play) and not one of the emulators then I suggest you go to modsource.org instead. They cover mods for the real version of the game.

When SOE originally released SWG, they broke entirely new ground in the world of MMORPGs -- not because it was Star Wars, but because it was very much a 'sandbox'-style game. What players did was entirely up to them; basically everything in the game was made by the players for players. SOE had trouble keeping up with this format, so they changed it -- first with the CU [Combat Update] and then with the NGE [New Game Experience]. Galaxies now is just another MMORPG, with mechanics and game-play essentially the same as World of Warcraft and EverQuest; the sandbox aspects are entirely gone.

Many of the players were unhappy about being forced to play a game they didn't buy; one that lost the features that had attracted them in the first place,

The SWG Emulator [SWGEmu] and the SWG A New Hope [ANH] projects are just two projects dedicated to reviving the style of game-play that SOE abandoned. Both are free, both are open-source, and both are the result of endless hours of hard work by brilliant volunteers. I test & play at SWGEmu, and I'd encourage you to try it too -- though it still has a ways to go to completion, it is very different from many other MMORPGs.

It may be another mod conflicting if you have numerous installed. The only issue with the UJM I am aware of is strange clipping on the cloaks for a small number of people and issues with bloom, which I recommend you just disable since it interferes with anti aliasing anyway.

Well, I don't think I have another mod installed tho, apart from the mod which gives the NGE face textures to Zabrak, Human and Twi'lek

As far as I know there is no confliction with that. This isn't a bug I've ever encountered or seen reported so I can't really help, especially since I haven't got access to the swg client right now.

If you take a screenshot of the problem and post it here I might be able to think of something causing it.

Download the Ultimate Jedi Mod, you can find it in the downloads section of this site. All of it's features are not visible on the emulator at this point but it includes a drastically better version of the lightsaber overhaul.
